Every evil genius need it's little sidekick.

I realy do like the Diatone GT frames. I've even ordered the 2.5 to replace my Nemesis X that I broke. The only thing I dont like about the smaller frames is they use of M2 phillip-head screws. Seriously? Other than that the only other issue was I had to raise the stack and mount the VTX03 to the ESC to get everything to fit using the Hobbywing stack.

The dry weight of this build comes in at 140G's and is more efficient than any other 1407 build I've had to date. I was a little worried about the weight of the frame being durable, but so far it's been flying great and held up to the few crashes I've had.

I'll update after a few more packs and the TPU camera mount for the Hawkeye camera comes in.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like the build..

Loving the colors on this one. I have something very similar in the works in regard to power and size. Hoping I don't pop things with such powerful motors.

Thanks! I'm really liking this one myself. It's about 40g's lighter than any other 1407, 3'' build I have and it shows it in flight times and power.

What times are you getting? My Atom 1407 build is getting 6 minutes on a 1000mah but the flight is pretty tame.

On my last outing I was getting around 5 min on an 850 mah, but I really wasn't pushing it. I get about 2.5 min on my Cerberus when pushed hard..

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..
