Looks pretty solid. AUW?

It’s a tank compared to my last quad. This puppy is sitting at 674g AUW with 6” props and a 1300mAh Adrenaline pack.

And that low profile session mounting is genius.

660g here, seems like above 650g is what we usually get when building tanky 6inch without saving weight.
Which is totally fine, more floaty than most of light 5inch quads :)

I see all of your last quads retired... bad crash?

Yeah I didn't really care about the end weight on this quad. The "floaty" thing is BS to me though haha. What I do know is this quad flies just like I want, I just have to tune out the oscillations it has.

First quad was outdated, parted out. Second quad had too many video problems. Third took a arm-breaking crash at a race and instead of cutting a new unibody baseplate i just moved all the parts to this 6" frame.

I always wanted to try 6" too. I will probably run this quad on 5" props for the most part though.

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..
