Got the building itch again and thought it is time to build a new quad. Saw a video about the Hyperlow CG frame on youtube and instantly knew that I have to have one too. It is a very well made frame. My Hyperlow is actually a Hyperhigh becasue I raised the top plate by 18mm to fit all my gear the way I wanted. Since I am no racer and enjoy building a bit more than flying, I figurerd I don't need it that low lol. I am also very happy with the Kakute F4 V2 and Tekko 32 4in1 ESC combo, which performes great so far. Got the DJI motors on sale for $9.99 each and 15 prop sets of four for $1.99. Love those motors. The bearings last a very long time in these and the performanc isn't bad.

I am working on my first build with the Hyperlow CG... I like your build and there is a couple of things that stand out... the antenna mounting and the plate the battery connector mount is on... where can I find those?

I'm working on a Hyperlow CG build myself, I love the way you mounted your XT-60. I found and purchased the Rakonheli mount, however, I can't find the silver plate you installed the Rakon mount on. Where can I find that plate?

Hi Audacity, I cut the silver plate myself out of a aluminum sheet I purchased from a hobbystore. It's .8mm thick and easy to work with. Can be cut with household scissors and the edges smoothed out with sand paper, then drill four holes for the mounting screws with a dremel or similar.

Thanks! Would have never thought of that.

Hi, love this build. I am doing something similar for a long range rig. Out of curiosity, what are the length of those stand-offs ? Also, did you use different height standoffs at the front ?

Hyperhigh is right lol. :) How are the dji motors and props? I haven't seen them before.

They are great. The perfomance is amazing. There are DJI 30A racing ESC's as well, but they come with a proprietary firmware, which is a little buggy so I stayed away from them.

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..
