Do you really need a quad with the heavy ducts to carry on a GoPro for filming? No, what you need indeed is a super light BEC board for your GoPro, make it lighter from 120g to 29g, and easier to install. So we de-case the used GoPro HERO 6 camera and assemble it one by one to make the GoPro Lite camera. If you have has a GoPro Hero 6/7, you can also choose the BEC board and case to build one as our GoPro lite camera.
We bought the used GoPro HERO 6 from the market, decase and change it to this light version. Really sorry we could not provide enough GoPro Lite because the limited quantity of used GoPro. Only 15pcs is available for retail now.
