  • A traditional toothpick has a tall profile and the camera is very exposed to shocks. So I designed a 3d printed camera mount -- that I call Marsupio -- which gives the quad a flatter profile and avoids the camera hitting the floor in crashes. This mount makes the drone more compact and reduces the number of parts (since it serves both as a canopy and a mount).
  • There are two versions, one with the camera in lower position (for 3 bladed props) and one with the camera in higher position (for 2 bladed pop in props).
  • The dry weight is 37g
  • With 1s 260 mah (old) gnb batteries (with 7g weight) I get 4 minutes of hoovering time.
  • The STL can be downloaded from thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4060247 (Marsupio_Toothpick)
  • If you print it, use PLA (my ABS prints cracked too easily)
  • I hope you also enjoy it!

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..
