Got the DJI system recently, and was unable to upgrade my existing Hyperlite Glide frame. So took the motors and looked around for spare parts, and this this guys was born! VERY tight stack... just one spacer nut between carbon, ESC, and FC to fit the DJI air unit on top.

Here is a video i shot with it:

How many grams of tpu in total?

Are you crashing a lot? yes, that is a lot of TPU weight. It affects your efficency. I saw your video, it's not slowing you down. If you were to pair down to 10 or 20 grams you would feel the difference. It looks cool, and all the prints you have are pretty well thought out, so I see the allure

Heh only been flying for a year, so i crash maybe once or twice a day on average when i get a chance to fly. A quad goes on the bench every other week or so it seems.. I'm not a racer so not looking for the best performance, but weight does effect flight characteristics quite a bit, so always lookin to shave off more.. My old daily driver (machineworks droner) has titanium screws :P But still decked out in TPU...
You got me thinkin though, i could save 27g by removing the feet/bumpers. May consider doing so when i start crashing less :P

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..
