I found this gorgeous freestyle frame from CrissCrossfpv.com
I decided to use the Ethix Mr. Steele Silk V3 motors, so color scheme (black & white) was obvious choice.
I designed the Vista air unit mount, antenna mount and DJI cam mount + Crossfire immortal-t mount and printed them of Polymaker PolyFlex 95A tpu.
All my designs for this build are here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4605336

I painted the top plate white to continue the color theme.
Stack has to be really low on this frame, so I used Pyrodrone F4 fc + Pyro 32F3 V2 esc (the one without heat shield on top).
I also had to swap the vista coaxial cable to 20cm, since 12cm is just a bit too short to this frame.

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..
