8s 1000mm X-class. This is a custom frame designed by one of my friends. I went with 700kv motors becuase I wanted some power, I got that. This thing screams and tares through the air. I get about 5 min flight time on full charge. The Foxeer antenta was origonaly just a place holder for a TBS Triumph Pro but I am getting really good quality video of of it, so I'm ganna leave it on. Without Lipos the weight is around 2100g. Do I recomend building this drone, No. You have to be willing to loose the money you put into building a quad this size. Eventually it will crash and break alot of things. Its great to take to a park and rip around and it looks awsome hanging on your wall but its not a every day flyer.

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..
