The idea was to build a Spit 3-based Cinewhoop with proper aerodynamic ducts and not simply prop guards. After the experience of setting up the Squirt V2 I thought it would be awesome to have something way smaller but with the same flight characteristics as a Squirt.

Compared to many other smaller cinewhoops, I believe Fullspeed RC's Turbowhoop is the only one to have aerodynamically-designed ducts similar to the Squirt, which should provide extra lift in addition to safety from props. I didn't like the 4K BNF version so decided on building from scratch.

Printed the ducts in TPU because PLA/PETG just doesn't stand up to small impacts/crashes

Flies like a dream after tuning. Eachine Nano heats up like a MF.

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..
