This build was to test some new parts sent to me from a few vendors. BuddyRC sent me a set of 2205-2550kv motors to test. Sunrise sent me a set of their 30A Cicada BLHeli_S ESC's to test. And APC sent me some of their new 5x4x3 Props to test. The MRM225 frame was the perfect choice as it will take a lot of abuse, and also provides a Yi mount so I can get the HD video I need.

The OSO 35mm Mini PDB made it simple to install a Micro MinimOSD, along with both 5V & 12V pololus in a very compact layout.

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..
