TP3 3"

I forgot I had built this little thing and hadn't posted it, so here it is. Much preferred over the 65mm, both for the greater authority and 3s as opposed to 2s. Flies great outdoors and even in the wind, though you'll wonder why you pull so many amps in kite weather. 1404 4600kv 3s on Gemfan biblades has been great, range is excellent with the full-size Immortal-T and video is crystal clear all the way out with the TrueRC Singularity even on 25mw. Flight times from 5-8 minutes depending on, well, high winds. It accelerates and handles excellently.

I don't really have a reason to post to youtube or anywhere else, this is all I have as of late.

Looks pretty good! I hope something like this will be one of my next builds.

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..
