i wanted more flight time so i increased the frame size to allow for bigger props. Had to spin the buzzer inside to avoid the props. I used less hardware this time, so even though i move up in frame size I shed 2g.
This frame says supports 1103's but i did need to drill out some slightly bigger holes to make them fit. This is not my prettiest build, the motors dont sit straight so the wires dont follow the arm.. but tape is your friend :)
Flight times have been increased ~4+ min having fun. To much power for fun above my house. I need to go to an open space to really see what can be done.
I got the dreaded rxloss at the most inopportune time :( Fortunately I did hit the kill switch before submersion.

im getting 0.1v in OSD and in betaflight when i plug in a battery. rebuild is inevitable

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