Got my Rooster in, just starting on the build! Had to get a bit creative to mount the smaller camera, but it seems to work pretty well! Got the motors in, as well as a prototype flight controller. It's all built and should be maidening soon!.

Hi, i'm planning to build a rooster like yours but i have some doubts on the motors. How do the f60 2500kv perform in your build? Do you think lumenier 2407 2550kv can perform better? Thanks.

2407 2550kv are going to be monster motors. Thats a lot of weight and a lot of current draw. Personally I prefer a bit lighter motor. he F60 are already pretty dang powerful on this setup. No complaints at all, and super smooth. This was on that setup lat year:

Hey man, I actually ended up using an Aikon prototype FC on this one and it just has the wiring harness to go between the two. There should be a harness for the Matek as well though, depending on which one you use.

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..
