Super G Plus / Tree Surfer

The SuperG Plus is currently my favorite build! 7" props have a deep, stealthy sound, barely audible beyond 75 meters.

The SMA+GPS mount is a remix of FPV_vibe's design, edited to accommodate the 26mm long Matek SAM-M8Q GPS module. I also increased height of the SMA mount by 2mm to avoid pigtail collision with the lower deck.

Cruising flight time easily reaches 11+ minutes from a 5S/1800mAh pack, and 6+ minutes from 4S/1300mAh.

Could you share a link to the STL for the 900MHz dipole mount?

The Immortal T holder shown above was actually half of a broken print found here:

I've since moved to this two part design: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3715865

What's wrong with the first immortal T + vtx holder you listed?

jseaber   Aug 28, 2019 

The pictured holder broke right after printing, so the VTX mount portion was destroyed. The antenna mount was not very stable.

Long story short, this quad is at the bottom of a lake :-(. I rebuilt with Airblade's ballmount Immortal T holder:

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..
