I could never get my Lora to fly right and ultimately attributed the issue to gyro issues tied to using the stack as a structural member (a completely unproven theory). After lengthy attempts to get it to fly, I gave up and put the guts in an Ascent V2 frame. In addition I replaced the abysmally crappy Racestar motors with Sunnysky 1104's that got on ebay for $40 and the results have been nothing short of spectacular! With very little tuning the craft has been transformed to a smooth, punchy flyer that never exhibits any of the gyro issues that the Lora did. So far I've crashed it about 1000 times and it just keeps going!

Update - RIP, lost in service

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