This is an old build running a kk2 board and simonk escs
I have decided to put an omnibus f4, run INAV for some GPS stuff and added a servo at the bottom cuz y knot : D

notes:

  1. these motors are not the ones I'm using. Use the ones you prefer (who knows, maybe even a 2510!!)
  2. the FPV system is one that i had laying arround I added a camera that IMO works well and is cheap and the video transmitter is the one I'm using (just don't... use a better one)

IDK how is it going to fly •_•

I'll keep you updated

08/07/2020: I finished setting it up, it arms and ... the servo works (wooo) I'm test flying it someday.

best drone for capture real time imaging.

if you are serious about flying this get current esc's. and maybe motors:)

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..
