Atomic Dragon

My very first 3" build features the Rotox Atom V1 Frame Special Edition, which means that the botoom plate is thicker than the normal one. The Racerstar 1407 motors are basically identical copies of the DYS SE1407 Pro Race Edition. This is kind of my "totally legal" Quadcopter, meaning it is AUW under 250gr and its VTX only puts out 25mW, making it legals to fly this thing pretty much anywhere.

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..
