hows the motors? i plan to get the same but i feel ilike theyre too overkill for my 3" freestyle quad (also 4s). Flight times on that 650mah? cant wait for a video :D

Motors are sweet! Flight time will depend on style (how aggressive your style is). The way I fly, I usually get around 4.5-5 minutes out of them

You added a mic? What for?

I like live audio of the motors while flying. Its more immersive, more fun, and actually when you're listening to the response of the motors to your stick movements it helps with throttle management (altitude control). I like to use external mic's for this as opposed to internal mic's on camera or VTX just because the external ones seem to work better (that's the only job the compoennt is responsible for). So, I'm always looking for VTXs which have an "audio input solder pad". There's a few of them. The one I'm using for this build has it and is also an 800 mW VTX. It all works good together. Don't know if you're familiar with live audio setup or not, however, if you're interested I've got a video on it entitled "MICRO FPV DRONE LIVE AUDIO SETUP" on my youtube channel. Happy Flying Friend!

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..
