This quad is designed to be a tough freestyle micro build, 3D printed from Nylon. The print requires no supports or infil, so you can balance strength and weight by varying the number of perimeter walls.

My build weighed in at about 51g dry, or 80g with a 550mAh GNB 2S, which is not featherweight but in my opinion provides a very nice flight characteristic. It also suits my style, which involves crashing into a lot of things.

Since the gorgeous Goober canopy has a fixed camera tilt angle I have added a small TPU riser to increase it. This riser will neccesitate the use of flexible screws, or like me you could just use snippets of nylon filament, heated into "rivets" (see the green in the photos).

I have also added the NBD DVR which allows for some static free recording if so desired. Here's a quick demo with a empty battery (oops).

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