This is the retail version of the Karearea Talon V2's, this one will only be using my custom pod, my Talon V2 Prototype I ran on Karearea Premium TOA 2207 1950kv, this one I have used the new Karearea TOA Turbine 2207 1950kv.

Also the paint job wasn't mean't to look like a Nike show......it just kind of turned out that way.

No idea if the paint will hold up without chipping off so I took a barage of picks while it still looks new :)

So, how did the paint do? Any chipping?

Yeh unfortunately I don't think this is the sort of plastic that will play well with paint.

I used Dulux as a primer, then a flat black base, then DNA Paints purple / blue flip, masked it off and used White Knights Acrylic for another white coat, topped that with Flouro Yellow and finished it with a polyurethane high gloss acrylic clear but it is chipping in impacts unfortunately.

That creates a stiff layer of paint, which is prone to chipping. Using rubber coating like Plastidip would not chip but I guess it will scrape off during a crash. Since the frame is black I do not believe something like Rit Dye would work well and generate bright colors. Too bad. If anyone has an idea how to get color to this frame, I would be very interested.

yeh Plastidip would work, but possibly as you said it could peel off.

hydro dipping maybe?

paint is fine on my 3D printed pod, its just the main plastic isnt really the sort of plastic that allows paint to stick well

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..
