This is a quad built from leftovers I found in the drawers. I have always wanted to build this type of frame, and I wasn't disappointed. It is easy to build (at least compared to my other super-slim quads) and good looking :-).

One weird thing is the antenna mount supplied with the frame. It is super-thick, hence there's no pigtail that can be mounted on it and still has enough thread left to screw antenna on. Hence I made it slimmer by cutting a bit of it, but still the situation is not ideal (the pigtail is slipping when one screws the antenna on). I'm going to replace the mount with an alternative one found on Thingiverse for TBS-style pigtail, but even that needs to be modified (as again there's too much material around the end of the pigtail).

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..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
