This is an Acrobrat Duo frame with a Lumenier FC/ESC/VTX stack and a RunCam Hybrid 4K FPV+DVR.

The quad weighs about 209g (without a battery), and I've been flying with a 850mAh (106g) 4S RDQ battery.

After building it, I see that it's eerily similar to this FPVCrate build, and that's probably because I got inspiration from several other builds on RotorBuilds that used similar parts. It all goes together great on the Acrobrat Duo frame!

This is the first 3" frame I've built, and I'm really enjoying its nimbleness. It will last for 5-6 minutes on the 850mAh battery and takes great 4K(30) or 2.7K(60) footage.

Thanks! I may try to get an extension cable and route it up.

The issue isn't that it needs to be on top. If anything, BOTTOM is better, since MOST of the time the quad is above you. The issue is attenuation to the frame. If it's not distorting, or causing interference in your video, I say leave it. It may be a little VOULNERABLE run across the bottom like that, for landings. On that note: your front and rear motor wires are in preeeeeety sketchy proximity to your rear props.
Honestly the vtx antenna thing was my first question too, but if the signal is clear, there's no need to change it.

Ah, makes sense! Yeah I'm a little worried about it getting scuffed up on landings. I've added some additional landing pads around it.

The motor wires are about 0.75" away from the props and don't move, I'm not to worried about them getting chopped.

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..
