very interesting project.
can you show me hettere the cable connetion between fc and esc?

sick build man! How does it feel compared to a 5" quad?

Zakre256   Feb 11, 2019 

smooth. super smooth and the handling isnt as "drifty" as I thought it was going to be. also very stable, I think the radix fc has alot to do with it also. I would highly recommend a 10in build!

Very nice!! Glad to another using the x-lite! Freaking love that thing!

It gets hated on sometimes I see, I guess because people think it's more like a toy controller. But I love mine, and it's so much easier to pack.
This case, while not all that well made (it's 18$) is really nice for lunchbox small quad trips out.

so I just got done the maiden flight! it flys amazing. sooo much power. so smooth. flight time was 13 min for mixed. 10 min for hard flying. flying real slow and smooth I can see easily getting 15 to 17 min.

QuadX   Feb 03, 2019  

Love it! Make sure you let us know what the flight times are...

Zakre256   Feb 03, 2019 

thank you! ecalc is saying at hover its 19 min, and it lists mixed flight at 12. so we will see.

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..
