This was my inaugural HD 6s(ish) Dead Cat build. When the moonlight system, capable of capturing in 4k in both daylight and low light, was introduced, I knew it was time to transition to an HD system (I don't care for DJI and their practices so I had to wait). Living in an area where penetration is crucial, I equipped it with an ELRS 915 receiver to cover my bases. Some custom 3D models and pre-made components from thingavirse were essential for this setup. It's always a pleasure to integrate my hobbies. I strive to maintain a neat and accessible layout, facilitating repairs or upgrades. It has been a killer experience flying this setup, with its awesome power during punch outs and the absence of a GoPro's weight, giving the feeling of floating for days.​

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