This was my first 4s build back in 2016, I had transferred all the guts to a shendrones tweaker, I had the frame on my wall and decided to look for some spare parts to put it back together. The motors are dys 1806 2300kv, the props are gemfan winddancer 4" 4032's, the esc's are 10amp sunrise cicada. The PDB is an older one from HGLRC which has the built in OSD, however I am using the one in the Foxeer Micro Arrow instead, the OSD on the Omnibus FC doesnt work. For the vtx I had a Eachine VTX03, and for the receiver I was hoping to find an XM+ but only found an XM in my junk box. The front standoffs are different from the kit they are round which work well with the tpu mount for the cam.

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..
