My learner "aint care" whoop. Recently updated from BetaFPV M01 AIO Cam+Vtx to a diamond vtx with axii micro antenna and caddx eos2 camera. I gained 5g with this update which is ok for now but this is not the final form.

I drilled out the molded in board standoffs and used some m2 screws so I could use more popular twig canopies to make this easier to work on. They are currently steel screws which will be converted to titanium soon in an effort to get the weight back down. Ill also be going to a little lighter battery setup and ultimately be back down to the original weight while adding a higher output vtx and dvr functionality.

I used Dave_C FPVs gatehunter canopy printed with 6% infill and trimmed out the bottom to clear the HappyModel Diamond vtx dvr unit.Also rx and antenna have been repositioned since those images were taken. They are much cleaner now. and without zipties so the weight has hopefully gone back down a little.

Once the replacement motor comes in Ill get some flight footage and post it up.

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..
