The goal was a sub-250g quad that can freestyle for 10-15 minutes. Budget was limited so could not go super high-end with all parts. Started with the brand new Micro Atlas 3" frame and built up using quality Aikon ESC and FC. For motors went with the super cheap and lightweight XING-E 1104. Impressive little motor. For camera went with the matching Predator 4 Nano because why not?? Standard FRSKY XM+ receiver and TBS Unify Pro Nano for VTX. The magic in the build comes from the Outcast Droneworks experimental Li-Ion battery designed for 20+ minutes of flight time. Preliminary testing is amazing. It actually rips. Final weight with battery is just under 220g. Subscribe to the pages below to join my journey:

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..
