Re-purposed BetaFPV 85X
Finally got to build me one of these. Many thanks to those that did the hard work figuring all this out. Used Ummagawd 85X conversion kit and Oscar Liang tutorial for assembly and setup as well as the GoPro teardown video by FPV Whoop.
GoPro is a Hero6. Its flying well.
huh. im able to start the recording from the remote but i havent been able to stop it with the remote. Have to do it with the app via Wifi.
might need a button. and a record light. Got careless and clipped it off with the wire cutters:(
Update: Removed USB-C plug, lost 3 grams.
removed HDMI plug.
See HD version in my builds.
Working on 95X frame version.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!
