This is my first bulid, never had a 4" before so when ImpulseRC released the micro apex it was love at first sight.
Went for the 4" and not the 3" since a 250g limit is not a constraint in my country due to the fact that FPV is illegal here:)) I did not take enough pictures mid-build, sorry for that, was too busy trying to figure out how everything sits together in harmony, turns out that this is most of the challenge :)
Take notice that the this 4 in 1 ESC is a bit big for the build and sits really close to the vista (I had to remove the capacitor and lengthen its' legs), that could be solved by mounting the ESC facing the rear and not the front and reconfiguring motors order\arrangement\alignment in betaflight.

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..
