This build took a long time to finish while I waited for components. It is definitely a fun build.

Packing the receiver and VTx wasn't an issue, but could do with better isolation. I am using HappyModel 2.4GHz ExpressLRS, EP2, which is definitely plenty. Flying with 300mAh, 2S batteries which are short enough to not block the camera.

At 47g dry weight, I get over 4 minutes with 300mAh, 2S batteries.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
