I wanted a super light, fun, and powerfull, 2" 16x16 drone that I could literally fly everywhere.. This is the result!

The frame is a custom designed 2" Vosair Sinew, tribute to the Sinew series by Jeremy Allen. Great frames that fly amazing and have great details on them.

68g total with battery included! Only accepts 2S batteries.

How durable have you found this frame to be?

The frame is fine, the problem was the durability of the electronics. I have since found better electronics and plan to rebuild it as soon as I get a chance.

For batteries, I was using 450-550mAh 2S lipos, with which I would get slightly over 3min flight times and plenty of power. With the rebuild I would like to up that to 3S or 4S, and probably reduce the capacity slightly to maintain a similar weight.

are you thinking one of the new 4s 16x16 stacks from iflight and diatone?

Yeap, that looks like the way to go, hopefully. I burned a couple of the original ESCs I used.

How are you liking those AOKFLY motors? The reviews on their larger 2XXX motors are generally pretty good, but I've had a hard time finding anything on their 11XX series. From their own published thrust charts, they look promising, even in 2s.

I like them a lot actually. Bought them out of amazon. So far so good! I only run them in 2S, but plenty of power for what they are. This setup is definitely more powerful than any tiny whoop I've tried.

Even though the two inchers will technically fly without the propeller screws, I always put them in now because they serve as structual integrity for the motor shaft. If you hit the prop hard without the screws in place, the motor shaft can get bent.

I actually fly with them on because these props have so much thrust that they eventually fly away otherwise.

The 4 and 5" frames are made by vosair and they sell them in their website. This 2" is custom, I had it cut by Armattan Productions. I can temporarily make it public at cost if you are interested in grabbing one. It comes to be around $13 including shipping, plus the hardware.

Love the style, and your hot glue cam mount makes me feel better about mine that I have been too ashamed of to post

I use it all the time! Sometimes it's nice to just work with your hands instead of designing in the computer.

Glad you liked the style as well. It's a blast to fly!

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..
