Hi Guys,

The title is a little bit ambitious but i guess no one tried to lift a GoPro with a 140gr Micro Quadrocopter before :D

The throttle was %80 when flying with half drained 2S LiPO battery, this is why it is a little bit aggressive.

This is my micro quadro setup

Controller:Opensource OpenLRS Multi receiver with Gyro and Acc with onboard radio receiver
Firmware: MultiWii v1.9 (modified for OpenLRS onboard receiver)
Frame: MQ-200 microquad frame
Props: HK 5x3 (black/red) props.
ESCs: FL6A Fast PWM 6A ESC (Hobby King 6A with firware update)
Motors: HK 10gr

Golden question for me, what is the flying time :-) with & without go pro.

Yes it is the golden question :)
 Unfortunately i didnt fly with full battery to empty yet.

Without GoPro: It flew with 800mA 2S but battery already was 7.4v after 10 minutes . Maybe this weekend i can test the flight time, before i want to remove all extra weights.

With GoPro; It is just for fun but i guess it cant fly more than 3-4 minutes. I will share the results.

Today i was on the field. My quad flew under 15km/h wind without any problem. Setup was same with previous indoor version.
Next mission: less than 100gr Quad with GoPro :)

This is really interesting. If you can lift a gopro, you can lift two Panasonic ncr18650b's which could give quite a bit of flying time. This would be a lot of fun indoors.

Another thought, have you tried 3 bladed props to see if you can lift more weight?

nice enough to just get up there take a few shots and come back down. sure beats my smallest fixwing  setup that can lift a go-pro
