This is the second version of my first hexa build. It's transformed to a gopro rig. It got new front camera mount combined with the gopro case, it's a TPU print to absorb the vibrations. I don't like the usual gopro mounts because it's hard take out, this one the camera slides in from the left and one M3 screw holds it. The "inner" case not tight, it's easy to change.
The other main change is a new longer top plate so it can carry a 3300mAh battery and the center of gravity still in the middle. Also got new motors this RCINPOWER GTS-V2 motors are strong and they are looks amazing.

Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
