Catalyst Machineworks Merica: the finest racecraft ever manufactured. Never have I experienced incredibly fast speeds as smooth as freestyle builds. Wow. All of the great stuff people are saying about this frame is dead on. The Multicopter Builders Primo 2207 2650kv are super efficient for their power too; you can easily run them for 4 minutes on regular flying and well over 2 minutes when hauling it. The Azure props are super smooth and have incredible acceleration. This is by far my favorite setup for racing I’ve ever flown.

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

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..
