This was my first build started in June 2021. Since I have a 3D printer I was able to design and print a few parts such as the camera mounts and LED Buzzer board mount. The first FC stack was a NBD Hive 16x16 but the ESC burned up on the second test flight so I upgraded the whole stack to the GEPRC Stable Pro F7. Jack was rebuilt about 3 or 4 times because every time an arm broke I'd have to get a whole new frame. I have retired Jack due to the fragile arms and the inability to replace arms without fully disasseble/reassemble the entire quad. Before retirement, Jack got my leg one good time as seen in the photos. Not bad for a 2.5".

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