Another Bush Chook Rooster aka " GINSLIPS"

The long awaited build of my rooster has finally happened.
I call her "GINSLIPS" A dark theme, matt black with a splash of red inside

GIN - a trap or snare for game. / SLIPS - avoids the traps..

  • I am not using the original esc and flight controller i had planned, i will hold on to that to upgrade should the gear not hold up to the challenge.
  • super tight build with a pigtail mod to the vtx required .. the frame is definately made for a AIO flight controller, single ESCs and smaller reciever and VTX as I originally planned, also the reason for the upside down ESC
    -The Armattan slop stoppers where actually too tight and without some filing or cross threading screws they never would have fit, so i left them out.
    -I got my hands on some neat protective braided heat shrink that is like kevlar when heated and shrunk that will protect the motor wires from propstrike.
    -FPV cam and gopro mount custom coloured with a flexible coating.. that stuff is amazing on TPU
    -The JST connector for FC power in the photos was removed due to room restrictions, it was there for easy disconnection. Dont ask me why.

  • The FC is flashed with BF 3.2 and even though the Fortini is good for 32 khz and 8khz PID loop i will just run with 8 and 2 for now, and slowly up her to see how it goes with my eratic and some what damaged flying style
  • ESC is BLHeli-S , so Multishot it is.
  • all up weight with props, bat, gopro, etc is 673g

everybody seems to love thier Rooster and that certainly depends on the build, hopefully mine is one of those....

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..
