As some of you already know, we got these big mountains here in Norway, where actually i live..

This build is specifically for that application :-D

Soldered the esc's a little different than normal for a "cleaner" look

Used rubber (no screws) between the camera sideplates and the split2 as a softmount for better hd, wich works great! Biblades gives me a little bit of jello, but hq7x3,5x3 are silky smooth

4S 1800mah 10+- min cruising.. i think 5s will be the sweetspot for this build, but havent tried it yet.

Looking to build something like this for a friend. Cant decide between full size or micro. I've seen too many sweet long range setups lately to make a decision. That swift2 looks awesome though. I live in arizona and we've got a ton of mountains here too, they just aren't as pretty as the mountains in your area haha. ps: wolfwhoop makes a 3gram 1200mw vtx thatd be perfect for thay setup. Its only flaw is that it doesnt havr accurate output. the actual output on 1200mw setting is over 1800mw (this is the highest output ive ever heard of bar none) . The 25mw setting also puts out 47mw which could be a problem for racers. It runs a little warm on the 25mw setting, but ironically It doesnt get all that hot on max power and might be perfect for your setup. It actually runs cooler than the TBS 600mw and puts out way more power. The range on it is supposedly over 10Km! Not bad for a 3gram vtx!

Insanely clean, looks really awesome. How does it handle? Also, you should invest in an HD cam, especially with a content source like the mountains. Great Build!!

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..
