S800

First time building a wing from scratch. I think it came out great! Using iNav 2.5 with S800 preset default tunes it flies great! Flatout it pulls under 40 amps and hits about 99mph. The 2" nails worked perfect for the canopy hinge; just tapped one in each side lightly with a hammer. The canopy seemed slightly undersized for my Hero 8 so test fit before you glue it in place. I ended up printing a Hero 8 blank scalled 101% all around, used a heat gun to heat up the canopy where it fits, and then just pushed/forced the 3d printed camera in. Once it cooled the actual camera fit great. Also, certain APC props (like the one I'm using) don't fit on quad motors like the F80 (the center of the pitch hits before the hub). I just used a plastic spacer in front of it to space it back a bit. Still had plenty of threads for the nut and it works fine.

I followed this build guide by NoAgenda FPV and then made my own customizations:

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..
