Snake Eyes ( Gecko 4'' )

I ordered the 4'' Gecko some time back, but wasn't quite sure how I wanted to build it out. I ended up mounted the Caddx Turtle on top in a TPU mount I found on Thingiverse and will be using the Foxeer Falkor for FPV. This is in the hopes of keeping props out of view of the HD footage.
As for the motors, FC, ESC's and VTX I've used all before and will use again being some of my favorites.
I hope to get a break in the weather soon and get this thing up in the air for some HD footage.

hows the flight times with 1507 just cruising around?

Using an 850mah 4S and the V1S 4" Prop I get maybe 3-3.5min flying hard. I think cruising around I could get up to maybe 4.5-5min

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..
