Barn Burner ( Strix Screech )

I felt it was time to build a couple low-pro freestyle camera rigs. The Screech is the first of two.

The Frame
I really like the frame for the price. The carbon is clean and the edges chamfered and it went together with ease. With a 20 deck hight having enough room to mount the VTX behind the flight stack was a added bonus.

Motors
What can I say about Cobras..... THEY ROCK!! This is my first time running the 2207's, but they are obviously smooth and have more than adequate power to carry the new GoPro that should be here monday.

I hope y'all like the way she tuned out as much as I do.

Very nice build*

how are the escs?

UnderDawg   Apr 06, 2018 

I like them.. This is my fourth build using DYS 4 in 1 ESC's

Aptivari   Apr 06, 2018 

They seem so cheap for a 30amp esc so i wasnt sure if they would burn out or not

Whiffles   Apr 06, 2018  

Does that frame have a 20mm set of standoff holes in the back?

UnderDawg   Apr 06, 2018 

Nope. Just some slots in the frame and it worked out that way. Strix missed the perfect opportunity to be cutting edge thouh.

Whiffles   Apr 06, 2018 

Yeah that would have been a great idea to put 20mm holes back there!

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..
