My 2.5" micro. Absolutely love it!!

The motors run very well (would get 7500kv next time though) - and the battery is a good size.

125g AUW with 450mah 3s Nanotechs. A little heavy but I'm using alu standoffs front and back and alu screws in the front because topmounted battery, the frame is heavy (AND thus durable) and the battery strap and leads could be lighter. Was a little worried about the 1104 7500kv motors for a setup this "heavy", but they're really running well - and only luke warm even on 3s!

Flying it with Skyzone Sky02s goggles and a Taranix Q X7 transmitter.

I wanna ask aobut what bats you use and how long of a flight time because im planning to do a similar build. We have the same frame, mines a 1106 5500kv, spedix is100 w/ 20a esc. You think itll be effecient? Any Advice?

If you wanna use standard hardware, drill out the holes suuuuuuper carefully. Other than that it's a great frame!

From the pics it looks like you've got M3 screws on the frame. Do you think you'd have to drill it out for M2 screws?

Don't know the size of the holes, but maybe, yeah. Never used M2....

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..
