What started as my first trainer, the Hubsan X4 107D, has evolved in to this. I've only had this going for a day but there are already a few items that need tweaking. This setup need a vreg on the line as I'm getting lots of banding and I need a small rubber/foam mount under the camera or another way to secure the camera.

It currently weighs in at 36g without the battery. The voltage step up will add 0.5g. So full setup will be 49.5g with 500mah battery, or 45.5g with the 380mah battery.

Yep for sure! Left them on right now to see when the FC thinks the battery is dead.

My Inductrix has been triggering the low voltage cutoff really early like that, even on new batteries. I wonder if it's off like yours. I may try to disable it.

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..
