‘Patriot’ is my latest Sub 250g Quad build It's a 5” Naked Hero 6 GoPro carrying Surface to Air Missile ;-).

The Hero 6 GoPro weighs 117g as it comes out the box, but a naked GoPro Hero 6 weighs just 17g It still has most of the features as its fully cased heavier brother. You still need to 3d print a holder for the Naked GoPro but this only brings the total weight up to around 30g.
(It has no sound, Touch Screen or front LCD panel but all the functions including Start and Stop Recording can be done by connecting your camera via Wi-Fi to the GoPro App .

Everyone is building Cinewhoops with Naked GoPros at the moment (me included ) but I decided to build something a little bit different A 5” Efficient Rocket that also carries a Naked GoPro Hero 6 Black.

This is the maiden flight so don't judge my left turns to much It still needs a lot of work and problems to iron out but you can really see the potential in this Sub 250g 5" .

Great build! Did you try 2x 18650? I was thinking to do similiar build with 1306/2700kv.

Thanks friend :-) I've done extensive testing with Li-ion packs and this setup would require a 3s pack and that would be closer to a 300g AUW

I honestly thought your photos were memes....please tell me im not the only one.....your build looks really cool tho!!! also is the naked go pro more likely to break than a regular go pro?

They are real and so am I ;-) Thank you for your complements :-). Durabily will always suffer when removing the protective case but if you keep the build light then impacts will not carry as much force (In Therory)

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..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
