My next build. All parts except the helix kit are waiting on my work bench. My goal is to make a speedy little drone for r acrobatic flying and maybe some racing. I'll post photos as soon as the frame arrives around the second week of September 2016.
UPDATE 10/09/2016 I just completed the hardware potion of this build. Plugging a battery in produced no magic smoke and all the esc and motors made their music wonderfully. I plan to begin the software / tuning potion of this tomorrow afternoon and will post video of it's maiden flight by the end of this week. I'm very pleased with the quality of the Helix and very much enjoyed putting this kit together.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
