I've been a big fan of Bob Roogi and his Toothpick designs. I was excited to try his new Fouride 4" frame that was purpose-built for the HD Vista. It's a top riding battery design that has that takes advantage of some of the latest AIO flights controllers. For this build I wanted a relatively small aircraft to be used with both 3S/ 4S 1100mah batteries. I was looking for a freestyle build that was light but also had enough weight to throw around.

Bob Roogi worked with Stan FPV on a 2203/ 3450 T-Mount motor that was perfect for this build. Overall the parts list is pretty minimal when using the Vista setup.

The only challenge I had with the build was tuning the JHEMCU AIO board. It's a noisy board and required a big cap to take care of voltage spikes. The Vista setup also benefits from the cap.

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..
