Not too much to say about this. As many have said, it flies like a 5". This little 3" is fantastic and holds a close second only to my Marmotte 5". I love flying this little spitfire.

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..
