2.5" custom frame copying the geometry of the Catalyst Machineworks Superlight frames.
Emax bullet (Not impressed at all with them) soon replaced by Lumenier 12A 4in1 (Very impressed with them)

Cool build. What is the weight excluding battery? I have the same motors but was thinking they are better suited to 2.5". How long do you get in the air with the 260mah batts? Thanks

Frame without pack is 50g. Flight time depend on how much power you will use, I generally land after 2.5minutes with around 20% left in pack. If you go slower you can go 3 or 4 minutes. This frame can handle up to 68mm but props on it are 65mm which is 2.59" ;-)
I'm very happy with this frame, a HUGE improvement in flight characteristics compare to the RV90 that I designed earlier this year.

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..
