Nice mods.
I can't tell how you re-wired the Air Unit antennas to your custom extension in the back. Have you noticed an improvement with the TrueRC Matchstick 5.8 SMA Long Antenna's?
Where is the Matek Tail Light mounted, I can't see it.
Lastly, do your trimmed ducts still have the desired effect of adding lift, or are they now simply prop guards?

I'm also thinking of testing without ducts and using a 4" prop to see if it performs.

The Antennas have extension SMA's that feed to the TPU. They are way too long! I haven't flown very far away or in any areas to test the matchsticks much. I don't get very low Mbps where I fly at all. I just wanted to get them over the battery. Matek light? I have a GPS unit that goes with the antenna mount. The ducts, which have undergone two more generations still provide thrust, but now the new version eliminates a considerable amount of sound as well. It flies smooth in the wind also. Would highly recommend.

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..

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..
