A quad I built for indoor flying. Designing cam holder/canopy was the most challenging and satisfying part. As usual I made it from high impact polystyrene bent using hot air. Camera is fixed in place by putting its lens between two pieces of adhesive foam glued to the inside walls of the canopy. 29 grams dry + lipo. I fly it on 1S HV 450mah Gaoneng batteries. Had to increase minimum power to make motors spin on arming. Maximum cell voltage also needed to be increased to 4.5 in BF. Otherwise BF considers HV lipo to be a 2 cell battery with extremely low voltage and gives voltage alerts even though battery is fully charged to 4.35V. Warning and minimum cell voltages needed to be lowered in BF too not to have low voltage alerts flashing right after take off. I didn't know what to do until I saw Nick Burns' video. Thank you Nick!:)

Love your canopy design! Looks like something from 80s Lasertag. :)

Didn't think of that:) But now that you've brought it up, I also feel a bit of 80's vibe in this low-poly design:)

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..
