I was very surprise to see the final weight of this setup to be 182 grams. That is the same weight as my MRM Micro Scythe 130mm. I assumed the 160mm Reaper would weigh more because of the RunCam Split camera, larger frame and motors.

I always wanted to record HD videos with my smaller 3 inch frames but it wasn't worth the added weight. Sure, I can add a GoPro Session but the performance and flight times will suffer. As you can see with this build I'm able to record HD videos with the new Runcam Split and yet it still only weighs 182 grams. It's not the lightest setup but I am happy with the outcome.

The one major drawback with this camera is the props being in view while recording in HD because the camera is mounted so s low.

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..

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..
