From old parts...
Hopefully I might get some of those cheap racerstar motors, new 6s (8s maybe??) esc's and potentially a new frame and make this a nice 10" fpv quad. I had 2212 920kv motors but swapped them out for some old samguks for a quick test.

Black spray painted cx-20 shell on the top - looks pretty cool.

test flight - this had 5" props

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..
