After the unfortunate death of my first build I've decided that I had no luck with micros (4 unfortunate incidents in a row) I decided to build my first mini.

Rig weighs in at 369.9g without batteries, and I get around 12mins of hovering with the 1500mAh 4S battery.

My first build using the Matek F405 STD FC, pretty easy build, but having issues with the barometer. Twitches when I activate altitude hold on BF, will sort that out. Testing out the Quelima SQ12 action cam. Can't go wrong at that price before I go full on GoPro.

Here's to hoping my streak of bad quad luck ends with this Rooster!

Nice build mate! Seems your baro problem is just a problem of tuning. Did you try to tune the barometer PID in Betaflight? I think the variable names are ALT, VelP and VelD. It is the same kind of tuning as for the motors. I personally only use the baro to monitor altitude through the OSD as it is not really useful on a racer but I tried the altitude hold for fun and it was not so bad after tuning. I had twitches as well before changing the PID values. You can check this for more info :

Thanks for the tip. Yeah I just wanted to try the altitude hold for fun, might be useful if i want to take pictures of it in flight haha.

Sorry to hear about the last quad :( This one is looking good tho. Just preordered my Chameleon TI and am excited. 12 minutes hover seems crazy long but I've never really just done a hover test though. Good luck with it!

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..
