So here it is: a rebuild of the original pepperF1SH. Pretty much everything in this build is as Simon aka fishpepper suggests. I took the 10000kv motors instead of the 8000kv ones and i decided against ladybird props i favor of LKTR120 props. These are very similiar to the ladybirds but have the 1.5mm mounting hole. Since those original BR1103 motor wires are really crappy to solder and tend to break of easily, i changed them to silicone wires as per fishpepper's guide. Finally, i cut a whoop-style battery holder of some spare foam and glued it to the bottom, which works surprisingly well.

I love the multi-color motor wires! did you replace the full wire, starting at the motor base?

yes i did. these motors originally don't have proper motor wires. racerstar just used the wire from the windings and put shrink tube on it. there are really stiff, hard to solder and break of very often. so i replaced them right at the end of the windings with proper silicone wire.

It is unbelievable well-behaved in the air. Flew 6 lipos today, hit a few solid walls and other obstacles, have not yet had to change a prop.

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..
