Simple build, modified frame. I wanted something faster than my 5 inch so I built this to see if it would be faster for chasing cars. I don't know it's it has a higher top end, but it cruises faster and for a longer duration than my 5 inch. It actually freestyles pretty well too.

I glued some 4x4 twill weave scrap carbon to the underside of the arms. The original 5mm thick arms are now about 8.5mm thick. The glue I used is called Hysol. It's a Loctite product. I am going to change the frame to a Flywoo Mr. Croc 7 inch frame as soon as it gets here.

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