I see you decided to go props out for this one, bold choice.

So I was looking, like I do, and talking to a friend about you. I noticed something else interesting here: tell me about your "stump & putty" system. I feel like you would judge me for not having that, after considering it for a relatively short time.
Is it just a round piece of wood, and some kind of low tack sticky stuff? Do you have 2 or 3 of them for wire extensions, and other sprawling systems that need soldering?

Hi. Its a lead sample i found , from the local galina mine , the mine closed 60 years ago, but some of the brighter locals were using the tailings for driveways and playgrounds and house foundations up untill the early 80s, I kid you not ,Made a big mess . the government spent millions cleaning it up just last year.
Yes it is wall or poster putty on the top and i use it exactly as you say.

That's cool. I need something like that in my life.
Speaking of unhealthy affections for lead: I LOVE the smell of the soldering smoke when I'm building/repairing. It's so hard for me to keep myself from breathing it. Everyone I talk to about it tells me I should NOT be breathing it.

What frame is this? Is this a Yukon Gold? Or that Idahoan Red brand?

You should perhaps upgrade to TaterFlight 4.2 - so long as you don't make a hash of the upgrade, it will give you very crisp results, will chip off your lap times, and mash the competition - but be warned it can fry your board, so be careful not to jack-et up. (Ok, that last one was a stretch... But let's face it, you started it!)

To get it frying right should i use crincle or strate cut settings in the par boil tab,
Tater flight makes it a bit starchy and the fork feel isnt quite right

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..

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..
