This is quad is powered purely on hype! All the latest stuff I could fit into one quad! It's super heavy though! 660g with GoPro and 4S battery, 700g with 5S. Wish it was a bit lighter.

Not really hype if it's not a Chameleon these days X-D

Oh I see. So how do you like the Loki? I am tempted to get one because of the 6mm super slim arms and the weight. I have a 3 inch build using the Storm Sirio X3 frame and I really like it.

It is pretty good, though the 6mm makes it a bit heavy. I think maybe there are better frames for the same or less weight that are as durable, but so much of that is user preference. I like this one because if you work it right you can mount the battery on top.

What are your thoughts on that FC? Any advantage with having 2 gyros?

Could you show how you have connected the fc, pdb and escs because i'm planning a similar build?

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..
