First micro since 2017 and first bl micro ever. theres a 'toothpick this toothpick that' thing going on, idek what a toothpick is even anymore. got the parts off fb and designed something with real toothpicks and like a true fpv-er, botched something together. performance impressed me but I cant really compare. 18g ish? flew fpv for a bit (fairly ballistic) but no pics sadly, and I smashed that up :( soI moved on and designed another one the next day. chopsticks for that next one (visible in a pic here) but I'll come back to designing a better actual toothpicks frame later

also sneaky shot of a few other canopies and incomplete things

Personally, I think you should get an award for making a toothpick out of toothpicks. Just lemme know where to cast my vote.

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..
