This is my first leap in to true long range FPV. I decided on the gorgeous Project 399 Super G Plus as the platform. Spent lots of time designing/printing 3d parts to hold the camera, r9M antenna, GPS module, and VTX/Antenna. I plan to upload those parts to Thingiverse (link to be added soon). Still working on the PID tune--will post those final numbers when I get them done. Enjoy!

(special thanks to Minichado for sending me his PIDs as a starting point)

hey dood, nice build. that GPS is real nice eh, i've got two of those. really like them. wondering what your thoughts are on those props? i ordered two sets and havent flown them yet but from the bench spooling them up they seem to have a lot of vibes. are you gettings the same thing? the more to tighten them down the more vibrations. im guessing because the blades can't straighten out perectly. so that means they almost have to have no tention on them to the point they almost spin on the shaft if you for it lightly. anyways. thanks for your time. 🤘

Looks great! I've gotten close to 20 minutes of flight time on a 5200 4s fwiw.

Beautiful and very clean build! Two Questions?

What's the flight time with 1800mah battery pack?
What product did you use to enclose the wires from the motors?

Thanks for the kind words. I havent yet had a chance to really test flight times. I am still getting PIDs dialed in. I'll try to leave an update later.

The wires are covered by standard braided cable sleeving - can be purchased on Amazon.

The antenna is designed for the Frsky R9MM mini receiver. You slide the two antenna leads into a small hole in the middle of the mount, and then attach the plastic tubing on either side. Works amazingly well--essentially creates an Immortal T type antenna that is flexibly mounted on a standoff (spaced away from carbon).

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..
