I designed the KDrone V1 5zoll Racer (Prototype) based on the TBS core and used parts from different other manufactures to complete my builds.

My design goals for the frame were to maintain light weight, with max durability and good accessibility for easy maintenance.

  1. TBS Cube with zmx X25 2300KV (Betaflight 2.8.1)
  2. SP Racing F3 with DYS XS 30A ESC and ZMX X25 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  3. AIO Board HGLC F3 V4 http://bit.ly/2h6YrNj with Cobra Champion 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  4. Revo F4 with Racerbee 30A ESC and RCX2400KV Motors (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  5. no name F3 Board with DYS XS30A and ZMX X20 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)

To demonstrate, the frame can adapt to a variety of different internals, I build 5 different versions so far by always using the same frame but different electronic parts beside VTX and TX and the camera.
I used as VTX the TBS Unify and as TX the TBS Crossfire micro receiver. The HS1177 was used to supply the video feed to my FPV goggles.

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..
