This was another frame swap build using a cheap Amazon frame. My T-Motor Stark frame was just too particular on props that fit. It also seemed to have a weak spot on the arms that would break pretty easily. I decided to retire that frame and repurpose most of the components into this one.

I also got my first 3d printer before the holidays and have been playing around with it. This build used some fun copper colored PLA for the skids. The photos dont do the color justice. They look nice in person and reflect the light well. They will probably explode on the first hard landing but I can make more now.

I also used a GoPro print from my Nazgul. It fits perfectly and looks like it was made for this frame.

I see some blue sky poking out behind the clouds, so maybe I can maiden this later today.

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