Autumn is coming, so it's time to build waterproof freestyle drone. Used silicone coating to cover all electronics and make it waterproof. Had to disassemble camera to coat its board. F2 Mito frame is cheap, but very good quality and looks great. It has not alot of space for components, so i chose TBS Unify Pro v3 vtx to fit in this frame with other electronics.

Upgrade. Installed new hardware - Kiss v2 flight controller, RunCam Eagle 2 Pro camera, Lumenier AXII Stubby 5.8GHz Antenna and TBS CRSF Nano receiver. Flashed Furious FPV PIGGY OSD (MinimOSD) with KISS OSD V2.5.1 (awolf78 KISS_OSD) firmware for better compatibility.

Nice and clean job, love it!
Got the exact same frame while having similar issues regarding the lack of space.

Would love to know how do you mount the battery (top / bottom) and how do you avoid the leash from touching the electronics.

Thanks!

I mount batteries on bottom, there is enough space between bottom plate and esc for battery strap....

Hey, very nice build ;)
What is the flight time and on which battery?
How much space is there for fc, etc. from top plate to bottom plate/arm...?

Tnx! I didn't test this drone in a field so far - it's too hot outside...
There are not much space in this frame - from top to bottom is 2 cm height for electronics

I usually use Tattu R-Line 1550mAh 4s 95c Lipos. Flight time is about 3-4 minutes aggressive freestyle flying.

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..
