This is my third quadrocopter and second Lumenier frame (came from the QAV400 down to this). As with all my builds I have a great focus on aesthetics and durability. Everything is soldered on or has solid connections. Loctite whereever feasible. Liquid tape covering screws as there is danger of damaging the cables or the GoPro. Cables run as short as possible and each component is necessary (for example the VTx powers both the camera and the Naze32 and receiver). No OSD because a battery alarm via telemetry (Futaba system external voltage sensoring) is enough for me.

Very clean. What do those motor mounts do for you?

That works! It seems builds lately are just as much about aesthetics than performance.

In my case I will need to swap out the ESCs for KISS 12A ones to get Oneshot and active breaking. Then the fun will begin.

I saw some talk about the KISS ECSs on this build saying they catch fire. I don't know how true that is, but it's something to look into.

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..
