No need to decase your Gopro! You can save 20 gram by simply powering your action cam over its USB port. You only need breadboard jumper wires, a USB step down module and an USB-C plug with PCB. My 3inch cinewhoop weighs only 236 gram with a Gopro Hero 7 black and a Tattu 4s 450mAh battery AUW! In this video it is shown how it's done! More details on the build are available as instructable here.

This is the lightest F4 1S brushless FC in the current market. Slim and sleek in design, 2.69g in weight and better performance on function for maximum weight savings, power, and responsiveness. I had troubles to bind with the integrated Frsky spi receiver in D16 mode but with CLI commands it worked out.

This RC plane weighs only about 10gram. It is entirely made of EPP so it is very robust. With its ultraslow price tag you can have fun without being afraid of a crash. It flies better indoors but it is also suited for outdoors when there is no wind.

- Racerstar Mamba 08028 motors
- 3d printed camera mount
- Caddx Firefly AIO camera
- Gemfan 1219 props
- Gaoneng 300mAh 1s battery
