Super clean build. Really like the the Antenna setup. I'm planning on using the VAS 915MHz mini's on my Super G build. What did you use for the antenna mounts (VAS)? Did you machine something custom? Or did you use something like a Steel mending plate and bent it at an angle?

Thanks! I fabricated the antenna mounts myself from a .6mm aluminum sheet and a 1.5mm black plastic sheet from Amazon. Both can be easily cut with household scissors. The aluminum mounts are attached to the frame with screws. The plastic mounts are between the aluminum mounts and the antenna. The plastic mount is to avoid having to mount the antennas on metal as it would mess with the antennas performance.

why not list motors and props? are they that bad? lol

they are not bad but they have been discontinued a while . Rotorbuilds can't find a link for the DJI snail 2305 motors and prop.

Personally, I prefer distsnce over speed.
Long range control, long range video with good frame rate are tops.
Love the build, and keep those antennas upright.

Wow this maybe the cleanest build I have seen when taking into account the size and all its features. Are you not running a gopro on it? or did you remove it to make it look cleaner.

Thanks! I love building almost more than flying lol. I used to have gopros on my quads. My flying style is pretty boring, no one was interested in watching my recordings. I just sold them and bought some quad parts.

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..
