I am always building new quads and this is my latest. I have never had a quad with a carbon fiber FPV POD so I went with this frame. I was looking for something that seems durable to go with my new EAFW motors. I flew it for the first time yesterday and man does this thing scream!!

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.
