I've flown an analog remix for a while. It is my favorite frame to fly. However, it was a very tight build even I used a FC/VTX AIO board and a 4-in-1 ESC, so I never thought it's digital viable.

It turns out it can fit in a 20x20 stack and a caddx vista with no problem, you do need the 12cm coaxial cable, and turn the esc 90degree. I put a small piece of ummagrip under the vista unit and secured it with two zip ties (like mounting an Air unit without TPU parts). Those camera spacers from the catalyst machineworks banggod fit perfectly for the digital camera on the Remix.

Maidened today, it flies pretty good with 4.2 stock pids and rpm filtering. I only had experience with HD micros and cinewhoop, flying 5" in HD is a even better sensation.

First time trying these Xing-e. They are smoother than the emax eco on my analog remix, feel similar to the $20 emax pulsar I have on my other quad. My only concern is this small ESC. Although it's rated 40A, but with a 740g AUW, wish me luck.

(Those arm bumpers are supposed to be installed another way around as motor soft mount but I dislike soft mounting motors so they are just bumpers)

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..
