How are those DYS 2030s doing on the 1103 motors? I have seen some comments that the center hole is too large for a press fit on this motor shaft.

WhaleFPV   Feb 16, 2017 

yeah they were popping off all the time, but i ran a couple of strands of thread through the hole before putting them on and they are pretty sturdy now, also the holes either side are (i think) m2.5 which i dont have any of, ive got some of the eachine ones on order http://www.banggood.com/5-Pairs-Eachine-2035-4-Blade-Propellers-ABS-For-Eachine-Aurora-90-100-Mini-FPV-Racer-p-1122901.html?p=L118159844732014128S ill update when they arrive (i might just use the supplied screws on the dys ones though as they are super cheap at the moment)

How does it fly with the 850mah Batteries? And are you using 1103 or 1106 motors, because here it says 1103 and on your Instructables 1106 :D

WhaleFPV   Feb 02, 2017 

Im using the blue 1103 and waiting on the 850s to arrive test flying on 20c 850 and 1000s it very quick and responsive....thanks for the heads up about the instructable :)

Cool, I thought these batteries would be way too heavy :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..
