I wanted to reuse my existing emodia frame and build it with DJI Digital FPV system.

I painted the frame all white and used black as the other main color. Also added few red wires highlighting the motor and power wires.

I would have liked to make this build a bit slimmer but DJI camera forced me to use quite tall standoffs.
Really like how this black-and-white build turned out. It looks good and DJI Digital FPV is really good!!!

Custom 3D parts created for this build:

  • DJI antenna mount that fits Emodia frames antenna slot.
  • Camera mounts
  • DJI Air Unit mount that ensures air flow underneath the unit to to keep it cool.

Hey! I love your quad design and I'm rebuilding it. Got all the parts except for the 3d printed parts. Got myself a 3d printer but I suck at designing stuff at the moment. Would it be possible for you to share your .stl files? Would be greatly appreciated! You can email them to verheijen.webdevelopment@gmail.com if you want ofcourse.

Sure. Added the parts into Thingiverse and updated the build description. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4078083

How you paint it? Last time I tired it with acryl paint and it is runs off..

Just used normal rattle-can spray paint. (I think its solvent based so it sticks well and dries fast but not sure if its acrylic. I'll need to check that.).
Have also used spray paint cans in previous buils with success:

They are all holding their colors really well and colors don't peel off.

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..
