This thing is a indoor freestyle legend! One of my favorite whoops so far.

Some comments about the build:

It's a pretty straight forward whoop build. The camera wire is very tight the way I have it ran, I wouldn't normally do this, but the canopy is super stiff so i'm not too worried about it moving and snapping. Plus it looks clean.  The motor wires are super long since they were used for a 75mm frame, so I mounted them with the wires facing out and twisted them to avoid having a lot dangling underneath. I normally wouldn't cover the underside of the motors because I like to do wall taps, but the batteries in this build hang the lowest. Lastly, I ran a bead of Welders glue up the back-side of the canopy where it meets the camera and used that glue to hold the vtx antenna with just enough length to sit in the antenna clip on the canopy. 

Additional Notes:
If you like to be an indoor acro basher like me, I'd suggest running a ziptie at the back of the frame where I have. This helps to keep your battery lead from popping off. Make sure to leave some slack on the lead from ziptie to fc.

I also put a dab of liquid electrical tape on the battery lead solder points. 

The 2x1s battery holder I have is originally from BetaFPV. It's 3D printed TPU. Available here: https://betafpv.freshdesk.com/helpdesk/attachments/27019872587

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..
