Obviously not everything is fitting in here, but these are the major specs of the DRL Racer3 from Drone Racing League. The frame, PDB, and motors are all custom build from the ground up, so they can't be listed as assets, so you'll have to jack the price up by whatever you'd expect those to be.

The missing parts are as follows.

  • Motors: Custom Built Brother Hobby 2206/1800kv motors
  • Frame: Custom Cut Carbon Fiber Unibody frame, with an extra spacer for some components
  • Batteries: Custom built 5s 1800mah lipos from Pulse
  • Power Distribution: Custom-size PDB that includes mounting holes for Polulus and regulators

I would really like to look at the 3d printed part that holds the gopro and the fpv camera in detail. I think that's genius.

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.
