This frame is not made for the DJI HD kit, so I attached it to the bottom end and printed a 3d part and swapped the stock antennas out for 2 VAS ions (see pictures other than the cover photo, that was before improvement). I stack 2 1300 6s batteries on top of eachother in parallel.

This setup works amazingly well for me! Apart from it being a beautiful quad it also performs very very well (after tuning). The graupner e-prop 8inch propellers are great (do need to be balanced) but very hard to get your hands on. Oh and those XING motors, the sound is well... lets say; very orgasmic.

PS: Chase from Rebel did tell me they were working on a DJI conversion kit for the yeti frame, but this seems to be a typical "2 weeks" maybe never" project ;)

PS 2: If you do decide to get this frame, and like me you are not from the States be prepared to pay tax on arrival at customs, this happened to me in Spain. Sucked big chocolate balls!

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..
