I was super inspired by the FT Gremlins popping up and at the same time looking for a way to build my own 2" micro racer. For fun, I decided to design my own frame, and populate it with various parts that seemed sensible.

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