I tried to go with light components to keep the weight down.
Haven't yet had the guts to remove the motor connectors :)
Camera mount based on a brilliant idea from here : https://www.facebook.com/groups/tinywhoop/permalink/2257438061143863/
Can't seem to remember where I got the vtx. I'll update this when I find out.
Comes to a weight of 19.8g without the battery.
Flies wonderfully ! :)

I don't know, haven't time it and I just got a new lighter vtx which I tried to put in, but it's not powering on for the moment but as soon as I get it flying again, I'll time it for you.
Glad you like it

Thanks :)
I'm not proud of my flying skills, plus my father crashed a bit hard lens first so the image isn't that nice, but I'll try to record something :)

Great! Do you think you can add more pictures that show details of the mount construction? Thanks!

I think I have figured it out. It's just a zip tie cut along its length! Pretty simple!

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!

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
