LOVED this frame. While it was in 1 piece. The bottom plate is just so thin. Snapped it in my first and only crash in grass. Nevertheless, I have one on order, the light weight is too good to pass up.
I ran 2 sets of motors on this frame for testing. xing 1404 4600kvs and fpvcycle 1303 5000kvs
I see alot of guys running 1404 motors but the fpvcycle 1303s are GREAT on 3s. Easily getting 3 minute aggressive acro flights.
I swapped the 1303s out after I had my fill for the 1404s and did some battery/prop testing on 4s. Blew up 2 of the fets on the jhemcu board and killed the frame.
this run was with the 1404s, 650mah 4s battery and windancer props. cant remember for sure but my dry weight was about 115-120g:

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..
