I wanted to build a lightweight 2S 2.5" HD freestyle copter.

It started off with 0802 motors. It was ok, but i wanted a bit more oomph so I added a 1103 version which I do prefer.

My frame is designed to be printed in polycarbonate - in which it's indestructible. However I know that printing in PC is beyond the reach of many - so I've started adding slightly modified versions of my frames that are sturdier to be printed in nylon-cf and possibly ABS ,(I've tested nylon-cf and it's great! I don't print in ABS, but I'm hoping it's still good). I've not yet got around to adding a sturdier version of this frame - if anyone is interested let me know and I'll get off my backside and finalise and upload it.

How many amps do you draw with this motor/prop combo?

A bit too shakey still and still needs a tune.
I've also just replaced the camera holder printed in TPU rather than PC - not had a chance to fly it yet to see if that helps or makes it worse!

Nice! Thanks a lot! I want to print it in PolyMax PLA that's very strong for a PLA.

65mm props are the way to go :)

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..
