I just love this frame concept, so i had to build another mini long range build. This will not be the last, i ordered couple more frames yesterday XD
It flies very well, is silent and enables a very long flight times (over 20mins with Li-Ion 4S 3000mAh), but you can fly some pretty decent freestyle with 6S as well.

This is a light weight frame, designed by Dave_C_fpv. All the parts are in His Thingiverse thing: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4584851
David also has some really interestig flight videos of this concept. His YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/DaveCFPV/videos

This baby will be controlled with DJI controller, so build was really simple, just solder the motor wires and power line and GPS.
I used the TBS M8.2 version GPS on this build and it is light years faster in 3D fix, compared to earlier version!
Since this GPS module is a bit bigger, i had to remix the mount. You can find it here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4652077

All printed parts are printed of Sainsmart red tpu.

Build weights about 200g without the Insta 360 GO mount & cam.

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

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..
