This is probably a medium to hard build as far as difficulty goes. I was going for something a bit difererent, something light, and something that can take 6s battery.

Ites quite tight inside and the HV unify just fits in the side. Its ideal to have the video transmitter on the side for airflow so thats nice of the design.

For this BrainFPV fc/pdb stack you really need metal 20mm screws, I on'y had plastic and they broke in the first crash, the frame took a good hit and no damage so far. When I redo it I will use the included ESC protectors as well instead of the black tape so it looks a bit better.

If I was to do this again I would probably go a bit higher in the KV with the new Tmotors F60 Pro II - https://www.phaserfpv.com.au/products/t-motorf40proii1850kv6sminiquadmotor but they were not available at the time of the build.

After flying and building this I think BrainFPV is my new favourite FC/PDB, documentation is second to none - https://www.brainfpv.com/knowledgebase/radix-hardware-manual/ and the hardware/design is very very good. You get what you pay for in this instance and its rock solid!

EDIt you may notice the usb port is at the front, I later installed this so I can still get access to it easily. https://www.phaserfpv.com.au/products/diatoneusbextensionwirecorddt-el-0014

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..
