At the moment this is the daily driver of my fleet. lunch time practice sessions (which I need a lot more of) trying tricks, gaps, and chasing my coworkers assortment of rc planes.

Ultimately I will develop a modular canopy setup that I can easily swap between stock fun whoop and a naked gopro cinewhoop. With that evolution I will go to a 3-4s capable 1105 motor as well. The goal is to replace my nutmeg build with something a smaller and more nibble. The nutmeg will evolve into a full on squirt build very soon.

Photos are out of date and will be updated soon. Currently have a much smaller canopy and an axii micro stubby antenna.

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.
