This is my first all-carbon 4S build and I'm really happy about how it turned out! The EpiQuad frame, PDB and Rx are really well designed and fit together with the Naze32 to make a very compact and tidy stack. The top plate is also easily removable as the EpiRex antenna can be disconnected.

So far I've been very happy with how it flies and it's held up well in the few crashes it's been through. I mount a Mobius camera on the built-in HD camera mount and a 1300mAh 4S LiPo fits perfectly between it and the FPV antenna.

Updates and Modifications

I'm going to a local race event this weekend and they're going to be using the I-Lap timing system, so I had to fit a female servo lead to connect my transponder to. For this I used the spare 5V and ground pads on the rear section of the PDB, these are intended for people who use a separate receiver instead of the EpiRex, but were perfect for powering my transponder which was zip-tied to the bottom of the top-plate.

This quad is holding up well and I've now upgraded the Naze32 Rev 6 to an EpiFC3. This was super easy, the EpiFC3 comes with pre-soldered vertical headers pins so all I had to do was slide the Naze32 out of the PDB and push the EPiFC3 into its place.

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..
