DIATONE CRUSADER GT2 200 FREESTYLER

You can't go wrong with the polished 5mm thick simplicity and robust strength of the Diatone Crusader GT 200 five inch Carbon Fiber quadcopter frame. I wanted a high performing, agile and super strong quick freestyler for the skies using Mid-to high end readily available parts. Paired with X-novas 2205 2300kv Hypersonic Motors this crusader cuts firmly and swiftly thru the Airwaves! It was such a fun and quick build, thanks mostly to the amazingly slim Flycolor S Tower All In One Fc/pdb/esc stack. This stack is layed out so simply and comes with all the plugs you need to connect your Rx, Vtx and Fpv camera. LOVE it. Literally had it fully built within an afternoon. The Monster V2 FPV camera with 2.5 lens feeds back some incredibly clear and vivid video to my Fatshark dominator V3's. The wallet saving and surprisingly high performing Eachine VTX was super easy to program manually with the clear LED channel display and push button channel selector. Coupled with the ever reliable and robust TBS Triumph 5.8 antenna its proven a reliable great combo for FPV video. Running this setup with the Taranis QX7.

Did you have to modify the camera or frame to fit them together?

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..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. 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..
