Hello to everybody

I build a foldble frame 450mm with a APM 2.8.
This drone its 1360 gr with the camera xiaomi yi, ,,,no battery included.
I put a 10.000mah 3s battery amd it can fly 20 minutes ,2kg all included until the battery show me 10,5 in flight and i land it.
With a 5000mah 3s it can give a flight about 12 minutes.
The drone can get maximun speed at 50km/h with this setup
When its folded its very small and you can put it in a bag or where you like

That's very impressive for a first flight. Did you fine tune the PIDs at all?

I m going to upload a new flight that i have increase little the power of the motors
The new flight looks a lot better

This gimbal can compare a lot of gimbals much higher price!!!

Just an FYI, the last photo you upload becomes your cover image, so your cover image isn't the best representation of your rig. I plan to change that mechanism to make it easier to choose a cover image from your album.

Looks great! Very similar to mine in size and weight. What kv motors are they and what's your total thrust?

cookmangr   Sep 01, 2015 

The motors are the 900kv
I dont know how i can find my total thrust,, could you help me how i can find it???

I found the spec sheet on buddyrc.com. 1250g of thrust at full throttle with that 11x4.7 propeller.
Now I can better understand how you're able to carry that 10ah battery...

I'm almost wishing I went with 900kv, but the added cost was inhibitive. No 10,000mah batteries for me.

Does the landing gear come with the frame? I didn't see them pictured in the ebay listing.

The landing gear are diy
I buy some of this http://www.ebay.com/itm/APM2-6-APM-metal-GPS-Folding-Antenna-base-for-DJI-fold-holder-Fixed-Mount-red-B-/251677787754?hash=item3a992a466a and i cut some carbon stick and made the landing gear.

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..
