This is the original weemix frame with new rails that bring camera further forward so less prop in view.
I've been flying this setup in 3s and T65 biblades with no issues. It's super beastly and loud.
The diamond vtx dvr eventually burned out the 5v BEC so I had to put in an external 5v regulator made by Pololu

Now I've ditched the diamond vtx for the non dvr version from eachine trashcan and I've added a insta360 go mount and have gone triblades. probably stick to 2s like this.
I've also mounted the front TPU print on the underside instead of the top side of the main plate to give a wee bit more tolerance on take off due to the underslung front motors. In this config, it allows the Insta360 Go to be mounted horizontally.

Have you had any durability issues with these motors? I've killed 3 of them in crashes with no visible damage, they just start twitching or not spinning properly.

which KV and 3 or 4 bolt?
these are 11,000kv 3 bolts so one of the very first runs of the kind. I've crashed this so many times and they are still going strong. I've also run them with HQ T65 props on 3s for like 12 packs and theu are absolute beasts

4 bolt 8000kv. I cut the heatshrink on them and all three of the broken ones had the middle wire broken off right at the stator.

thats a shame maybe they used too thin gauged wire for the higher kv variants (lower KV needs more windings)

I'm really interested about that insta 360 on my quad as well, is the quality of the video OK?, do you have some footage?

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..
