3inch HD freestyle fun < 250g

I wanted to try to build a freestyle frame that stayed below the 250g limit, yet is as much fun as possible. When looking at the available frames, i couldn't find what i was looking for - a frame looking similar to an 3" version of the popular Marmotte-frame. Prepared for a 20x20mm dual stack build, as low in height as possible. So i designed one myself, which you can see in this build. I either will upload the files to Thingiverse, or make this frame available for purchase.

It is flying really amazing, especially now with Emuflight. Highly suggested for all frames 5" and below.
In the pictures you can see the buzzer. This was removed in the latest version, i'll update some nicer pics later on, as well as videos as they come.

The 3D-printed parts holding the camera look very useful. Please post the STLs for these on Thingiverse if you are happy to share!

Hi Stephen! Sure, i'll try to upload them there. It's just that I've made many changes since then, also added an Immortal T mount to it. I've also changed the motors to more powerful onces so i can carry a GoPro Session as well. Will post this as a different build though (and above 250g of course with the session).

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..
