When I want to fly indoors, this speed demon is what I reach for.

There may be lighter quads, there may be faster quads, but this one is mine ;)
I've had this frame the longest, and it's the most destroyed (and re-melted lol). But it still flies well and keeps taking hits!

I don't mind taking this quad everywhere I go.
I can use 600mah batteries for 5 minute flight times.
I can fly it outdoors in moderate winds with the quad blades and 25000kv motors.
I can fly it after sunset with the Caddx Ant.
I can do all the things with this whoop.

If you want to replicate this build, note that you will need the "longer" Zerograv75 camera head from R3DShifters. The stock Zerograv camera head is too short to accomodate the Caddx Ant with it's rear connectors.

The quad blades paired with the 25000kv motors are a battery killer. Even reducing idle down to nothing (0.25%) still makes the quad skid around when arming.

But man, this thing is fun.

Edit 9/7/20: Went a different direction, replaced the camera with a Foxeer Pico Razer since it fit better in the stock mount without removing the Ant's connectors, and replaced the motors with 17500kv onsies and 1.2x3 Azi props. Thing flies amazing, even outdoors in the wind!

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..
