I think this frame was intended for dual camera rigs however, I like the idea of one camera... two cams is too much haha! I added the runcam DVR, hopefully the recording quality will be alright, if not, I may upgrade to a HD cam system with built in DVR. The holes in the frame happen to fit a 5/8" OD rubber grommet; I used one with 1/4" ID as an antenna soft mount for the AXII Stubby, gets the antenna securely out of the way and facing my general direction... under the quad =) It also creates a nice little cant to the quad on lift off. Not sure if the ESC shield is going to help, but I figured what the hell, and stuck it on in hopes of cleaning up noise in my gyros and VTX. Printed WoodInMD's frame guards on Form3 in Tough1500 Resin, hopefully it lives up to its name.
Update - So I've been flying this thing for a couple months now, and it's pretty bulletproof (props excluded of course).

if you fly far away the best position for the vtx antenna is on top the model not down.
when you go back home the carbon frame between the video diversity receiver and the vtx antennax (I tried on my skin) is a problem.

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..
