My DJI air unit did fit in my 3inch but not in my 5inch, I had to do something about it!

I decided to design an adapter to put screws for a 20x20 F722 mini DJI FC at the back of the frame, leaving room for the air unit above my regular 30x30 4in1 esc.
The air unit is squished enough to be held between the motor wires and the top plate.

And it flies awesome, 6s power, so light. Power to weight ratio is insane. I am never putting a gopro on a frame again.

Nice!! Can you share photos of the adapter you designed to put screws for the 20x20 F722 mini DJI FC at the back of the frame?
Thanks.

Clever approach to smoosh the 30x30 main stack with the Air unit. Haven't seen this done before.

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..
