Just finished the build today. Will fly tomorrow and see what there is to offer here. Interesting design I must admit. The full build with battery strap minus battery comes in at 295 grams. Really happy with that weight. Should perform well, will see. Plan to add the R9mm later. Thanks for looking at my build.

It's a pretty cool concept, but Im a bit afraid about what happens if theres a head on impact with a pole or a tree. If this impact results with a broken vertical plates and a strut bar, then its quite annoying and possibly expensive to repair.
Also, your build is too heavy considering those motors weight less than 30g. Probably it's the TPU canopy what makes it heavy? Should be around 265g with those motors.
Give some feedback about its handling and efficiency please.

I did not build this to race even though this is intention of the frame. It was built to my flying style which is ripping hard. This build comes in right at 295 grams and when the throttle is applied it literally leaps in the air. Which is exactly what I wanted. This build is highly responsive to stick inputs. I would say the way the rear arms are tucked in and up from the front motors holds most of the credit. It is definitely breathtaking to fly the Raging Droner. if you race this is what you want trust me. On 4s it is very efficient and handling is unbelievable.

What a cool frame, half smooth operator, half Murica'. Nice work with the canopy/motor color coordination

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..
