I liked the idea about a quad that is way under 100 Gramm with 3 Inch props.

I have found this nice frame (TP3 like...) with sidways battery mount, from Halcon , it is send from UK, so there is no need of buying in china. I love this frame it is well made and light... And the canopys also !

For the FC i took the Betafpv toothpick 12A board.

Next i take the Amaxinno motor 1103 7500kv, it is the new version with 2mm prop shaft.

For the VTX i took the Betafpv M02 nano, its small with 350mW. The antenna has a good range!

I love my Nirvana radio, so i take the Oversky XR602T-A reciever, very small an good range...

For the camera i selected my all time favourite RunCam Nano 2 !

And 2S batterys. 450- 550 mah

Last but not least i add a buzzer !

Weight: 58 Gramm
AUW: 86 Gramm

I was trying to get 75 Gramm AUW, but with 86 Gramm is still ok, i am happy and it flies still great.

Flies really good, great stick feel. Not the fastest but fast enought and you have so much control, even with 2 blade props...

Flighttime with the 450mah around 3-4 minutes... 550mah race line up to 6 minutes

My new all day flyer !!!

Have questions, feel free to ask!

Just updatet the canopy to the lighter one from Halcon :-) , and also add a lighter VTX Antenna.

Awesome build, I'm working on my first 2s AIO whoop 3". My current 2.5" has 7500kv 1104. Do you find these 30x18 props pull a lot of current? what is the max?

11A is my draw. When you have a 12A board, will be fine with 3018 props...

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..
