Upgrading all my squad to f7 flight controllers and some drones are mostly completely have new hardware. That is what exactly happened with Intruder ( While upgrading that drone i decided to replace frame, vtx, pdb and antenna. To be able to use up to 6s lipos i installed bigger capacitor - 2200uF 50v. So i get completely new build using old motors, escs (they are great and i don't want to change them) and camera.
New build means a new name. Name Marauder match this drone perfectly.

UPD Replaced camera with Foxeer Mix (first generation).

Why the bigger capcitor? I'm looking at the F80 2200's for 6S with XRotor 60A ESC with possible throttle ratio limiting in Betaflight. I've 2 x 1000uF caps but not sure why you might want to use a larger one or run 2, etc.?

It's all about spikes. imho - 25v caps great for 4s, 35v better to use with 5s, 50v for 6s.

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..
