Decided to strip my Eachine Wizard and modify the deck height and add lightweight electronics to give it a bit of a birthday!
Racerstar F4S will clean it up considerably, very little wiring and as long as you put a 1000uf cap on it you won't have any issues with noise in your video feed.
I'll stick with the stock motors as these are fine for general flying (and I have spares) and the loss of weight from the rest of the build will give it a little more punch than before.
Generally I fly my Rooster or Micro's, but when I want to try some new stuff the cheap and cheerful Wizard is just the thing as it costs so much less to repair!
Top carbon plate has been cut to allow clearance for the camera, currently using 25mm nylon standoffs for the spacers but have some nice blue anodised standoffs on order from Banggood to replace these.

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