I've long since flown the new off this SkyRyder 120 1S build. The frame is the 2mm variant and comes in around 4.2 gm. It is built up with and old Crazybee F3 board (that I thought I had killed today but resusciated with a reflash), the FPVcycle 1202.5 motors, and Gemfan 3018s. The bi-blades are a little more effort to fly but they have more speed and can fly bigger than the tri-blades. We still need a lighter prop for 1S though; there is better performance to be had out of this format. For the tune just keep pushing up the PD gain until the handling feels crisp. There is still a little propwash if you drop the throttle with sharp cornering, but you know not to fly like that right? I don't really see benefit on 48 khz but RPM filter may help. I will get a diff for that once I get an F4 board build flying.

For some DVR, see my prior review on the motors:

SkyRyder is a new line Quad66 of frames optimized for 1-2 S builds with zip tie canopies. The form factor is super compact and works best with regular size AIO whoop board with built in RX or VTX. The idea here is to really balance small space performance with daily flyer robustness.

The frames are available from my Armattan store:

that little thing rocks... trying to find ways to start an inexpensive and safe park racing club. This right here is a great contender!

I agree that 1S 3 inch in 1202.5s would be a very good park racer. If you are looking for something particular in a spec frame it wouldn't be hard to develop a custom design.

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..
