My first ever build. Not so much to say.
The main goal was to create a balanced build in terms of price and quality. All soldered points have been sealed with laquer for greater strength and safety.
I'm really happy with the result!

Did you insulate the VTX pads from the carbon? If not I would flip the vtx over to make sure the solder pads are not touching carbon. Overall great build.

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