A nutmeg build. Flown several times just for testing on 4s without a gopro. Flies well enough, but I still need to tune the pids and rates a bit and cut a couple more props to test. Motors come down nice and cool even when I cant help but throw a power loop towards the end of the pack.

At the moment im running the DALPROP 4045BN cut down. but I have some: -DALPROP 5040 and 5045 -Gemfan 4052 -HQprop 75mm ducted and -Gemfan 3052 that I still have to cut down and run a pack or two through.

UPDATE 1-4-20: Photos are now out of date - Most of this build was transfered over to a 6s squirt build which is also published on my profile. This has become just a bit of a parts bin quad. Im printing a new set of ducts that Ill have a session mount on. The F440 is totally overkill for this build but its what I have and whats applicable to the 4s limit of the f20 II motors.

UPDATE 1-8-20: New iteration nearing completion. 1 of 2 new duct prints complete. Photos are added - White ducts with session are the new setup

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

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..
