This frame was the newest version when I built it but since then they came out with another version so the Part List below is the only place where I can find a frame similar to what I have. This build was pretty much straight forward with my only complaint is the standoff being in the way of my USB plug. It is really easy to remove the standoff and the best part is that I do NOT need to loosen the other 3 to do it.

The power to weight ratio is insane, so you get some impressive punch out with a 3s lipo.

TomoQuads is awesome because they are willing to share the 3D files for there quads. They provide me some files for a legacy quad that they no longer sell too. When I bought this frame used on RCG is came with all black PLA 3D printed parts. But I wanted to give it some color so I printed my own parts with TPU. I included the Thingiverse link below if you wanted to print your own parts.

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..
