150g dry, 250g AUW (850mah 4s) Haven't flown it yet, but this board was awesome to work on. Huge pads, and the direct solder feature is super convenient. These motors look incredible. The power to weight ratio on this is going to be stupid. I limited motor output by about 80% (3450kv is a little high lol).

Update: I got a solid tune and it flies amazing! So much fun. Here is some DVR:

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..
