I saw the Diatone MAMBA f7 had multiple LED connections - so I decided to build a kwad that made use of all of them. Turns out only the LED pad near the USB connector is addressable, the other LED pins are controlled by a button with a decent selection of colors and patterns. I made use of two as you can see by super gluing them to the side of the sled. Overall the build wasn't too difficult, I did need to file out some parts of the frame - the tolerances are REALLY tight.

First hover/easy flight went well. Definitely a different flight characteristic. I feel like the camera is lower than I'm used to when I flip or roll.

The r9mm antenna gets decent signal, at 100mw I don't really dip below 80 rssi

Updates to come!

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..
