This is a low profile mid to long range quad that can carry large (up to 155mm long) top mounted battery.

quick climb, Mountain test run Helgeland Islands, Norway

The original "deadcat" arms layout has been modified to more traditional "X" layout in order to avoid a mismatch between COG & COT.

Built as a fast mid range surfer for aggressive mountain flights (running 2200mAh 5S and up to 2600mAh 6S Lipo batteries), however also performs well as a long range quad when carrying 4000mAh 6S LiIon or even very heavy 4000mAh 6S LiPo.

I've opted for custom build motors from T-Motor, these are based on "F40" Pro-line with identical properties as their top of the range version IV, just upgraded in size to 2407 (rather than the original 2306) and custom 2323kv.

AUW with GoPro Hero6 is 707g before battery (my preferred batteries are 4000mAh 6S LiIon, or 2600mAh 6S LiPo at 425g each).

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..
