these dual stack H frame micros are the 2018 hype
i got on the train at the caboose
here is a long range take on it
what is special here is the dual cam mount. Flying from a proper fpv feed is magnitudes better than the runcam split's feed
these 1206 motors are silky smooth, very powerful and quite efficient! I get 3 minutes of enthusiastic flying out of a 450mah 4s!

hey, is it possible to run that mamba stack in the proper direction? cant get it to fit in a similar frame because 4in1 connector butts up to the cam board even tho they are on separate standoffs. Curious because im thinking about that frame for more room.

Hi, It is pretty tight so I didn't bother to cram it in. Rotating is simple enough, the motor remap isn't too bad. Safest bet is to use a longer frame like the acrobrat or the AK crossbow

How did you go about managing the motor wires coming from the front 2 motors?

daich   Mar 28, 2019 

the wires on the gr1206 are very long so I didnt' have to extend them. They run from the motor down the arm and between the front standoff of the front stack and the camera side plates, underneath the front stack and then to the ESC which I rotated 90 degrees so that the soldering points are facing forward and backward.

1206 eh? That's not a very common size. How do you like them?

they are smooth and very well balanced. Haven't crashed it yet but they look solid and feel very well built. Pretty well matched with the gemfan 3028 and 450mah 4s and this "not very light" build around 170g before battery.

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..
