I ve built this tiny drone based on a Flywoo Firefly frame. I used standard tinywhoop parts like a Diamond F4 AIO board and 0802 motors. Props are Gemfan's 40mm bi-blades. Overall, the weight is only 24.5g without battery and Insta360 Go2.

I really like this mini vise. It's very handy for soldering jobs on small PCBs like drone flight controller. You can get it here: https://www.banggood.com/custlink/vKDYN5Z1uo

Switched from Umma85 to Flywoo's Cinerace20 frame. It's more robust and still capable of shooting decent videos. I use a Insta360 Go2 as which better fits the frame than a larger naked Gopro.

This is a pretty versatile and fun toy! You can use it on any flat surface to cruise around like a hovercraft. It even works on water! Best of all, you can detach the drone and fly around.

After breaking my Gopro Hero 7 I had to buy a new action cam. Got me the newest Gopro version, the Hero 10. So far, I'm very happy with video quality and stabilization. However, I had several camera freezes and connection problems using the app. By the way, never remove the battery when your Hero 10 is frozen! All your footage will be lost!

KababFPV's TP3 is hands down my favorite quad due to its versatility. With its 3inch props you can do freestyle, midrange and even cinematic shoots. Moreover, this toothpick stays well below 250g gram, small 3s batteries are affordable and is not that loud like a 5inch quad.

The updated tiny GPS by NamelessRC works like a charm! It's a major improvement over the first version which hardly worked for me. However, V2 is slightly larger due to the bigger ceramic antenna and heavier (3.0g). To my testing, it gets a quicker GPS fix than Beitian BN-180, BN-220 and salvaged Gopro GPS.

Happymodel's EP2 ELRS receiver is perfect for small FPV drones like tinywhoops. It measures only 10x10mm at 0.4g weight. You do not need an extra antenna as this RX features a SMD ceramic antenna providing plenty of range.

Lumenier's Double AXII FPV antenna is able to effectively more than double the gain of a standard AXII 2 antenna from 2.2 to an incredible 4.7dBiC. The results are close to a patch antenna despite providing omni-directional high gain!

Works great! Gonna stick with ELRS, it's a great and affordable radio link system. If you can't update your BETAFPV TX open the casing and hold down the button on the PCB . Some early TX were faulty.
