What should I say? This project was fun :D

My inspiration was DCL game, in there I saw something similar. Of course my first thought was like "I need this". Luckily I had a not used Diatone 2019 GT R349, and a Reptile CLOUD-149HD frame. The body is 3d printed, there are 28 leds in it, and Timmy's eye is the camera. It's a heavy build, it's not to fast, but that's not the point. The windshield is from a snowglobe-like plastic toy.

I hope you like it :)

Are you sure you didn't use the Predator Micro and not the Nano? The cutout in the head is 19mm wide, which is Micro sized, not Nano.
edit: another quick note, mostly for anyone like me buying parts to build one for themselves, the frame linked in the parts list is not the right version. You'll need the Reptile CLOUD-149HD - the regular one in the link above won't work (ask me how I know)

This is awesome! I've bought all the parts to build one, but can you link to the plastic toy you used for the windshield?

edit: is it this? http://www.incrediblescience.com/volcanic-eruptions.html

There are a lot of lovely X-quads out there, I have some myself, but seeing something truly inventive and unique is a real treat! And when an outlandish idea works out as well as this one did, well, serious props to you! (pun likely intended...) :-)

I'm going to echo what Jayembee67 said; the rest of us need to pack it in because I think you just 'won' FPV! lol Amazing, amazing design and implementation!

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..
