Hows the Runcam Hybrid working so far?

No issues so far. The FPV feed is clean (though it's 4:3, so my V1S stretches it). The colors seem saturated (reds and greens look super rich). I’ve heard it compared to the Nano2 (which I have in a toothpick build) and I’d say it’s close. I don't race, so can’t speak to latency, but it feels responsive. The HD video looks good, with good light handling (critical in NE fall/winter). I run it on 2.7K 60fps without issues. I haven’t experienced any jello with this cam (can’t say the same about my Foxeer Mix). I’ll try to upload some videos this weekend.

Sweet build, I really dig this classic alien-box frame style. Did you happen to weigh that frame? I can't find any numbers to compare it. Also how are the motors? They look great and I can't find much about them.

Thanks! 55g with TPU antenna mount and 25mm standoffs, but its tough AF. Haven't weighed it built (going to wait for the split camera).

The 1506s scream, especially 4300kv on 4s. They are notching as hell. So much so, HD video quality might suffer because of it.

Phew that's a big boy! About the same weight as the acrobrat but different format. I like the look of this frame more for sure. And yeah I don't know that there are any really good options for "smooth" motors right now. They all seem to be designed with racing in mind. I'm still shopping around.

Yeah, I've had a good experience with BQE and like the simple build. It has a ton of room (for a micro).

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
