One of the challenging frames to build. First time for me building with 4in1 ESC, less cables and much clean. Also first time with a Revo FC the plan is to replace it to an Omnibus V2 Pro with built-in BF OSD. The BrotherHobby R4 motors feels like having so much power and their color is just appetizing... The canopy was ordered from https://www.phx-3d.com/ to match the motors color. Overall it was a fantastic build experience, another quad to my large collection.

You gotta try the 1.8mm lens, the Räsvelg canopy was designed for it and it's the ram jam!

How is that related to this specific frame?

When we designed the Rasvelg canopy, we added another camera mounting nub further up in the canopy specifically for the 1.8mm lens so people could have a nice wide angle lens. We decided not to design a version to fit larger lenses like the one you are using because it had caused issues with dealers having so many variations of the Garuda canopy.

alright, thank mate!

For the love of Betty Crocker's holy panty drawer, fix those Rx antennas! Just pull the exposed bits down inside the heat shrink around the zip tie so the wear and tear doesn't get to them, and they're kept straight. That portion of the antenna can be inside the heat shrink and along the plastic; those materials won't act as a shield and interfere with reception.

Take a look at Snowqueen, that's how I do my RX antennas: http://rotorbuilds.com/build/1672

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..

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..
