I had this build on a back burner for several months due to some insanely busy times at work, but I finally got it wrapped up and flown! So light with the new Hero 10 Bones and it absolutely rips with Betaflight 4.3, EdgeTX and BLHeli 32.9 with ByRPM PWM frequency. Stunningly good! All up weight with the Hero 10 Bones and a 1550mAh 4S is 605g. Love these SunnySky motors too, super smooth.

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