I won the Megabat frame in a raffle. I was origonaly ganna use a Radix Li and a Hobbywing 4-1 but the esc did not fit into the Megabat frame. I used a HGLRC stack that I had laying around to build this rig. With no tuning it flys well. I don't really trust the HGLRC stack so I haven't done any fancy flying with it. SInce 1925kv is quite high for a 7 inch I added a motor output limit. So on 6s the kv is 1500 and on 4s its the full 1925kv. I took a risk and used a rubber band as a battery strap, so far it has held up well. I am amazed at how much more adgile this frame is compared to my other quads. It is also by far the lightest 7 inch I've ever flown. I would highly recomend this frame to anyone that enjoys some backyard flying. This is not really a bando ripper or a long range rig.

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..
