After several builds based on the Caddx Turtle I realized they can never be a Gopro replacement, which made me start looking for micro frames that could carry one safely. I've heard about the Squirt way before Paul Nurkkala made it trendy so it was natural that I swayed that way. The TPU ducts were a pain to print, and even when you get a successful print it's never as neat as you want it to be, but it works.

Been unlearning to fly just to fly this Squirt, because of course it flies differently than a 5" or 7" that I'm used to, even a regular 3" micro. It just flies like a heavy whoop, with more mass flying in the air, which makes for some interesting technical flying. Re-learning how to fly it in Horizon to make things more cinematic, but if tuned properly I believe you can easily fly cinematic with Acro mode.

Running T-Motors F20II 3250kv motors on 4S 1000mah which gives me around 6-7mins flight times.

The Hero 7 mount was designed by me and can be downloaded here

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..
