The illustrious LAZD worked with me to make some modifications to his new Featherlite 4" to accommodate the new 1608 T2 motors. I had two goals, more power than my aging 5" builds, and ability to do that while carrying a GoPro and 1300mah lipo... Yeh I know I'm insane.

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