This was my very first build just over a year ago. I can remember being intimidated with the soldering even with the large spaced out pads.

The S500 frame has more than just a few upgrades in the last year. Sunnysky 3108, 720kv motors, 11'' prop, T style landing gear and the SteadyGo 3 axis gimbal being a few.

Some earlier footage with the Walkera G2D.

First flight with the Tiny2.

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..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
