Cool frame but a very tight build with little room for a VTX and RX. The only real option is to strap them on the frame above the FC.

Edit: Replaced the AKK Nano 3 with a RMRC Nano Cricket. It is a MUCH better fit for this tiny frame.

Saw you are using 650mAh batteries ... Not too heavy? How did it fly?

Dubbin1   Mar 27, 2019 

They may be a bit on the heavy side but it does fly great with them. I do want to get some 450's to try out and see what they are like.

I am going to use my 450s. Shall know more on the weekend

In the middle of building mine, and yes its tight for components. Going to use new components with a BlHeli32 ESC and the Matek F7 FC which I am excited to see how it does.

I thought about using the Radix LI for a MultiGP micro but apparently 3S is the minimum voltage for that board, which would've thrown off the rest of my build. :\ How do those motors handle 3S?

They handle 3s with no problem.

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..
