It's time for the yearly rebuild of my beloved orange Armattan 4'' Japalura. I finally decided to ditch the standard size flight controller and separate ESCs and go with a smaller 20x20 stack. I've been having great luck with the Diatone Mamba F405 MK2 stacks so I went with the Diatone Mamba F405 Mini MK2 stack. I've also been having great luck with the Rush Tank VTx lineup so I used the Rush Tank Mini. It previously had BrotherHobby Avenger 1507-4100kv motors and replaced them with the new BrotherHobby VY 1507-4150kv motors. Lately I've been putting a GPS on a lot of my builds and wanted to put one on the Japalura, The larger top plate is the perfect size to hold a GPS so I drew up a TPU mount that clips into two of the four holes. I couldn't really find a good spot to mount the TBS Immortal T antenna so I made one that slides over the smaller top plate and holds the antenna in place with a couple zip ties.

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..
