It's built like a tank!

After breaking the arms on my first two builds, I decided to find a frame that just doesn't break. I went with the Goby 180 because IndestructibleQuads.com based one of their BNF quads on it. True to its reputation, I've yet to ding the frame. I've sheared everything off the top, snapped both 1806 and 2205 motor shafts, and yet the frame and everything inside it has survived.

This was to be my backup build, so instead of having expensive T2 motors, I just went with the $8.50 Racerstar BR2205s. I chose that instead of the standard BR2205 because of the prop grippers at the base of the prop shaft.

The Hero6 is..

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..
