Squirt V2

This is my first complete build. I wanted a lightweight cinematic drone for carrying an Osmo Pocket.

I designed a custom antenna mount for the micro AXII and Immortal-T V2.
I also designed a custom battery strap mount for the bottom plate, which uses the 30.5x30.5 holes and fits over the stack bolt heads in the 20x20 holes.

The hardest part of this build was getting my Wanhao Duplicator 6 printer to TPU reliably. The key for me was increasing the nozzle temperature to 228C in order to prevent clogs and filament binding.

In order to fit the TBS Pro32 Nano in the WhitenoiseFPV board, I had to file the hole in the board slightly (less than 0.5 mm).

Quad: 252.1g
Battery: 104g
Osmo pocket: 116g
AUW: 472.1g

My only flights so far have been hovering around inside my apartment, but I'm getting 6 minute flight times.

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..
