My 2S Li-Ion Long Range Micro Reverb has been sitting unused for months after I pulled the FC for a wing project. When the BH 2004 were announced, I thought they'd make a great upgrade for the Micro Reverb to start using it on 3 and 4S and hauling cameras. I'm still surprised how right I was. These motors are fantastic with 4" tri-blades! 7 Minutes with Session and 850 4S. 5 Minutes with Hero and 650 3S!

Hi mate, nice build here. I'm trying to build similar to it. Cannot find the gopro standard mount you have there.

Nice build :) It would be great freestyle rig with GoPro Lite (.youtube.com/watch?v=KH7-qZRAXKE).

Nice looking build. Is this more for freestyle or cinematic flights?

I intended it for cinematic flights but it actually has quite a punch on 4S even with a hero or session on board. I'll be seeing what it can do and uploading video soon. :)

Seems like a good rig for a Hero8. Should be able to handle the weight no problem.

Black Friday Sale at BetaFPV.com - Save 20% sitewide with coupon BFCM (Nov 27 - Dec 1) FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage..

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..
