This is an advanced freestyle rig I build. It is not trimmed to be lightweight or high speed. I just want to fly it and make sure it works like I want it to :) Nothing spectacular but definitely a very well flying quad! The betaFlight OSD makes it perfect to tune on the fly and makes it easy to switch VTX channels!

How are you liking that Omnibus FC? That's a pretty great price if all those features work well.

It works very well for me :) I killed one signal track on the PCB but that is purely my fault :D I was able to remap the motor output to the LED pins to maintain the DMA ability and keep using DShot. The OSD is awesome, VBat works, the buzzer works. I am very happy :)

O-kay, I have to ask about the battery cover... Is it custom made?

Nothing spectacular :) It is bicycle inner tubing and I pulled it over the batteries. It protects the batterie against gravel and stuff and works quiet well. But it is not so easy to get it on.

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..
