This is my Toothpick build! The frame is designed by dave_c_fpv. I cut this frame myself on my CNC machine.
The AUW is 87g with LiPo included. I get flight times around 4-5min.

Thanks! The frame, the AIO board and the motors should be able to handle it. I have not tried it yet. Maybe a 3s battery could be useful in this case.

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.
