So far I'm really impressed with this frame. Simple, elegant and durable, although it's a little tight on space inside for a freestyle frame - just enough room to fit my usual set of components - a Helio Spring FC with a 4-in-1 ESC, TBS Unify Pro HV, and Crossfire Nano receiver. It feels really balanced and has a nice CG - similar to a Chameleon or Rooster, but with better separation bewtween the front and rear props, as its arm geometry is not as "squished" as some other freestyle frames - while still managing to keep props out of the HD video. Relatively easy to build, although you do need to manage your stack height if using a 4-in1 ESC. Wide arms and relatively low deck height means it's probably better suited to individual ESCs on the arms with an FC with a builti in PDB, but still workable for a 4-in-1.

You just mount the gopro with the bumper and the strap as pictured? How do you like it? I don't like the session mount they have looking for alternatives

i ended up replacing the mount with one from brain3d. works well.

Great looking build! Looking at this frame for my next build. Are you using the built in soft mounting and if so, did you run into any issues with tuning?

Jackal FPV   Feb 07, 2019

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..
