Going for the cheap build, got some spares parts sitting around, and also all the other parts are ordered with at least 20% off.

The frame looks quite sturdy, but i read afterwards that they don't sell replacement arms bummer, so if you know fitting replacement arms, please tell me.
Also decided to go with separate PDB, although the Omnibus F3 is supposed to work without an extra PDB, but haven't figured out how to get current and voltage reading to the OSD then, any tips appreciated!

Progress
Update #1:
I used some spare motors i got sitting around, originally wanted to get 'better' ones, but now the omen is to use the stuff you have around. Coated arms with CA and painted afterwards. It seems the paint won't last, can scratch it off with fingernails ;/
Now i'm and waiting for the PDB to arrive, until then it's wire planning and stuff.

Update #2:
PDB arrived, ESC and Motor soldering done. Hope to finish it today.

Update #3:
Just maidened it in LOS, what a difference to my Racer 250, now i know how fast a punchout can be :)
Betaflight stock PIDs work amazing (at least in angle mode).
Still waiting for the FPV cam.

Update #4:
FPV cam and VTX installed, already had a couple of flights. everything works well sofar.

Any tips for paint that actually sticks to the frame?

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..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
