My first 6S build, tried to keep things clean. Wires remain at full length until i find the best configuration for video as far as vtx/cam power and ground sources go. Havent flown it too much but it felt nice with just stock 4.2 on it on the maiden. Added a capacitor after the pics were taken and everything seems nice so far as video goes as well.

Update: bridged the vbatt jumper on the cl racing board and i have the vtx powered off that. Cam is powered and grounded on the vtx and the video is really great even at full throttle punch outs.

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

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..
