Hey Cleaner, did you lengthen the Crazypony VTX antenna? I've got the same setup, and the wire part of the whip is not long enough for the canpoy hole. This is my first build, and I don't want to toast the camera/vtx!

Thanks Cleaner. i lengthened the whip with some 22awg wire....not sure if that will work and have already ordered a longer whip in anticipation of failure. (!) FYI you can clean up the hole in the canopy with a 3/16" drill bit, just twist it by hand and the the whip slides through. cheers

can you run that guy on 1s or is it 2s only?

Cleaner   Apr 15, 2018 

It should work just fine on 1s, though may feel a bit sluggish. Maybe have more of a whoop feel.

Thanks for your response. Just trying to decide if I need a 2s tiny shark or not.. you make it look awesome!

Cleaner   Apr 18, 2018 

You definitely need one! If you want something extremely small and light, I'd definitely build this again. I also have a 2in. eclair that I am using 4S on. That thing is a monster! This one feels much more tame.

Looks very nice and agressive, big motors though! Whats the average flight time?

I'm not sure yet actually! I've been waiting for a good day to fly it. Also, I have old batteries, so I'm not sure if they're going to be as long lasting as I'd like. But it should clear up in a few days here and I can report back.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
