Long range build, not much for freestyling , but mountain cruising , reached 15min flight time with a 6s1p 18650 VTC6 pack and 4km maximum distance (had many mountains in the way, so I decided to not push much, but I wasnt afraid of losing the drone as it has gps and rescue mode enabled)

This video bellow was recorded with the GoPro Hero 5, mounted over zipties for Reelsteady purposes, without zipties it was being impossible to smooth any video at all! I hope to be able to print the specific reelsteady focused mount , that uses rubber supports.

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.
