Had a few 2 inch builds. This is by far the most enjoyable to fly. I built this for smaller outdoor spaces and bigger indoor ones, being a 3S build. No other 2 inch frame feels this stable and smooth in the air. Congrats to Dimitry (Mr. FlexRC) for this design. And also thank you for supplying me a new frame after I broke my first one. FlexRC frames have armattan-like lifelong warranty.

number of minutes flight time?

also I'm curious if the 2S, 3S, etc impacts flight time or if it's just the mAh. I know the more cells the more power, but I don't know if cell count impacts flight time.

i fly this rig only with the tattu 450mah 3s lipos. therefore i can't tell you how the flight time changes with 2s lipos. I get around 3 minutes with my 3s lipos.

cammo2009   Jan 04, 2018 

thanks. according to my research the best way to maximize flight time is to fly 4500 kv motors. i'm guessing that 2 cells will have a longer life as well, also at the expense of power/thrust.

thanks again.

q-ratz   Jan 04, 2018 

to be honest, i don't think that the lost in power is worth the longer flight times. at first i had dys 1104 7500kv, which in reality is a 1105 7500kv, and the quad felt perfect, the most 5 inch like feeling i had up to date from a micro. after i broke 2 motors i switched to BBB 1105 6000kv and i really felt the lack of power coming out of dives. the quad now felt more micro-like than before. therefore i changed the motors again for amax 1106 6500kv hoping to restore some of the power.

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..
