I have been thinking of using Orange and White but I wasn't sure how it would look. So I decided to customize this 3 inch DIY kit "Tyro 79" into White/Orange theme.

I spray painted the carbonfiber parts White matte and used Orange accent colors when possible.
I also managed to make Smartaudio work even though VTX didn't have any visible SA pads available. (Smartaudio pad was there but it was hidden under one connector and it wasn't documented anywhere. Figuring it out took quite a long time but now it works :+1: )

This was nice little easy build :) .

Yes, rattle can spray paint seems to hold quite well. I have also used it to paint patterns with 3D-printed template. (See builds https://rotorbuilds.com/build/17007 and https://rotorbuilds.com/build/16478 ) .
Especially the build #17007 has had some very rought landings, high speed hits into trees and into the ground but still the spray painted pattern is holding up good :D

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..
