Wanted a quiet build for park flying. Real pain soldering on this board, but it flies!

9/2/2020: The Betafpv Silverware board seemed to have a bad flash, motor mapping was all wrong. Also, it just wanted to fly away. Attempted to adjust pids, but no luck. Ended up replacing with the FPVCycle 1s board. It's a great board with large soldering pads. I'm using the Dave_C_FPV Sanchez frame so the upward facing USB on this board didn't make much of a difference in this build. Also, the solder pads for the VTX/CAM aren't really through holes, the pads are too small on the underside of the board the solder from underneath. Otherwise, solid board.

The quad flies well enough, a little floaty and loose in the corners, could use a tune, but great fun in tight areas where you wouldn't fly a 5inch. Getting around 3:30-4 mins on RDQ 1S 450mah batteries. I also switched them over to BT2.0 connectors.

It's super quiet and lightweight, making it a great lunch break ripper!

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..
