Purpose: Mid-weight 4S ripper
Batteries: Tattu 650mah 4S, Turnigy 650mah 4S, Turnigy 700mah 3S
Dry weight: 125g
Weight with Tattu 650mah 4S: 195g

This is my first 3 inch build and I didn't build it with the intention of making the fastest 3 inch quad (Singapore has no space for that anyway) but something relatively fast with good efficiency. Oh can I just say what an amazing camera the Monster Micro Pro is :D leagues better than my old Runcam Swift Micros. Colours are a lot more vibrant and the resolution is improved too. Anyway, I flashed it to Betaflight 4.1.1 and it flies not bad on stock PIDs.

Here's a test flight on 3S, haven't done 4S yet but will get down to it soon!

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..
