HEY! Are you tired of battery sag? So was I! This is the product-- The "Finch 3" -- Responsive and consistent throughout the up to 4 minute flight times on 3s 650mAh GNB batteries (3 minutes uses about 450mAh) with no sag or fade whatsoever. Best still is it comes in under 240g (this means weight for a split cam if you have the extra change and want to figure out how to fit it)!

Build notes:
-Stock motor screws are a little short for comfort, "borrowed" some longer ones from my avenger motors--Don't forget the loctite!
-Antenna is a little floppy and has resulted in several prop strikes-- bending the antenna more upright has temporarily fixed the issue along with a bit of tape around the antenna through the hole in the back of the frame.
-sorry for messy wires, still working on cleaner building

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