HyperLite Tooth Fairy

I had the unused, 6S capable, Hyperlite 2205-1722 motors from the original Superlight Norris build plan still in the parts bin, and then simultaneously the Mini Magnum 6S 20x20 stack was released at RDQ and the Tooth Fairy 5" frames came back into stock at Pirodrone. This was the perfect way to get the lightweight 6S build going again. The quad with no battery is 14g lighter than the Norris, but with a 6S pack will be a bit heavier. I'm still deciding on 1050mAh packs or some other size.

The Mini Magnum 2 build seems like a good idea, but it's missing a few things to make it a big win for me. The M2 hardware included with the stack strips the plastic super easily, and doesn't feel secure enough for a crash. The manual lists a current sensor on the ESC, but the FC does not have any available UARTs to take advantage of the sensor, unless I'm missing something that isn't listed in the manual (it's pretty sparse on information). There's also no Blackbox logging available without an external module. And finally the FC is hardmounted on standoffs, with no method of soft-mounting the gyro IC. I'll have the opportunity to do a few test laps at a track tomorrow, we'll see how it flies and whether it holds up through crashes.

I really like this frame for its simplicity and structure. It feels really solid, and the paired arms are smart. The Hyperlite motors are always awesome as well, although there might be a greater propensity for these 2205's with the solid shaft to bend (that's what I've heard anyway). I'd be remiss to not have a few more of these frames in the spares bin.

I've primarily been using Foxeer cams lately, but so many of them have had odd issues that I've decided to try the latest and greatest micro Runcam that has an M12 lens. The size and format of the camera is great, and the image quality seems excellent. It's really bridging the gap between micro and mini.

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..
