i was gifted a betafpv 75x FC/ESC for my birthday :smile:
had this set of motors sitting in my drawer for a while...got them for crazy cheap on a deal a while ago.
just four grams heavier than the 75x. after flying the mobula7 though i think the game here is all about counting grams so this one might need some shaving, like lighter motors. let's see how she flies first!

Had to de-pin the vtx/camera header as I didn't feel like paying £28 for a Z02 camera/vtx

using a JST plug here. way better than the inefficient PH2.0 2x 1s loom and a tad lighter than the xt30

I'm still waiting for a realistic HD whoop. Let's see some footage! BTW, that motor link is wrong

I only got some test footage in my flat :(
It got taken out on two sessions and first time had motor connection issue and second time the props kept flying off. (motor shaft too short for the 1.5mm 40mm betafpv props) I just gave up after that. When it did fly it was actually not bad... just had too many issues so I dismantled it for another build :P

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..
