This quad is great. I use it for both freestyle and long range. It's durable, flies well, and is relatively affordable.

Notes:

Mounting:

VTX: I put it in the back left with some vhb tape. Used a 3d printed sma mount for the antenna.
RX: I put it in the back right with vhb tape. Ziptied the immortal T to the bottom right arm on top of the racewire.
Cam: I used the included camera mounts that come with the Razer mini.
GPS: I mounted it on the racewire on the bottom left arm using vhb tape and secured it with electrical tape.
Stack: I used standard stack screws and soft mount gummies.

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..

The Hero6 is..
