4in Pickle

I smashed my 3in Carbon Micro Oblivion due to a RX loss and it landed on concrete T_T. Since I already have three 3in toothpicks, I decided to move this one over to a 4in frame and try out the new HQ T4x2.5 Bi-Blade Props. I only got a couple of packs on it but so far it's a good cruiser. The 1404 3850kv motors are pulling a max of 34 amps on a 650mah 4s according to the current sensor but I never calibrated it.

What do you think about the durability of the frame? I measured the arm width - they're approx. 4.5mm - have you had any bad drops with this guy yet?

The frame is 3mm thick and the arms are 7mm wide. The frame cut along the carbon weave for additional strength/stiffness. I haven't had any bad crashes with this one just yet, but the frame feels really solid.

Ah ok - I was looking at the 65mm frame - that one is 4.5mm wide. Thanks for the response!

But does it "fly like a 5 inch"? :P

That GEPRC board is one of the few aios I've used that has a pretty accurate current meter out of the box. Pretty crazy it can handle those motors. Have you tried it on 3s?

Thats good the know about the current sensor being pretty accurate. On 3s it flys pretty well it's a lot more controlable in small spaces for a newbie like myself.

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..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
