I've upgraded my previous build based on the Stringy.
I've choose Armattan OOmph Velvet (2300kv) for their efficiency and their smoothness.
TBS Crossfire micro has been installed with antenna well positioned now.
Gopro support has been revisited to avoid any vibration.
FC Matek F405 has been mounted on soft mount and gyro/looptime has been set to 16K/16K with CPU load < 17%.
ESC has been setup to multishot to limit CPU load to the min.

It flies very very well with a very low current draw. Battery life reach 7mn easily with a 1800mah 4S battery in cruising mode.

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