wow, this is the exact build ive wanted to do for ages. I grew up with fixed wing LOS then Heli, then FPV freestyle, now just want to surf mountains long range with some autonomous capabilities. thanks for this. I just need to educate myself on setting this all up

Have you flow this yet? If so how does it fly?

It flies. Seriously not sure what to say. This is one of two TBS Caipi II's I have fom over 15 wings currently. CG is always important but it seems especially so with this one. Though it's always easier to have a wing a bit nose heay than the oppisite. This vesrion is a well thought out wing. TBS did a good job and really improved this version over the first.

What is the deal with the launch of this wing? I have 2 other wings and neither of them have a dip as bad as this thing. Flies well once it's airborn, but it's always a bit of a pucker moment launching it. My S1100 Harrier practically flies out of my hands. I wonder if the Wipeout has the same characteristic?

Hey Charles, great looking Caipi2. I've been flying mine LOS for a couple weeks, really nice wing once it's trimmed out. Question about your Vector, I'm installing a uVector. You've installed yours in one of the bays, which would be convenient, but ET recommends to install it on the centerline, in the middle of the wing. Have you had any weird flight characteristics since it's not on the centerline of the wing? Thanks for taking a look!

may i ask for the parts you used for the FPV equipment also? please include all the parts thanks

soundwave439   Jul 27, 2019 

also which rear led you used?

Where did you place the Eagle Tree Vector Flight Controller?
I'm not sure if it works when I place the Vector in one of the two bays. Propably the Vector is to far away from the centerline.

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..
