My iFlight Megabee build.

This is my first cinewhoop style quad and I really like how the build came together. The fact that everything is attached to the bottom plate makes this so easy to build and maintain.

So far I have only flown around a dozen of batteries with it but I already like how it feels to handle. Getting used to the slooow flying will take some time though, I often notice that I'm flying way too fast for this kind of quad.

Also, even slightest breeze will have big impact on this thing.

Custom gopro mount I made fro this can be found here.

I'm not 100% happy with the way I mounted the cap with but that'll do for now, there wasn't a lot of choices where to put it since back of the frame is really tight with vtx and rx stuff.

For antennas I decided to use full lenght antenna tubes and long ass pagoda. I don't think there's really need to worry about their durability on a quad like this.

My last concern are the ducts provided with this frame. they seem very flimsy and fragile and someone on instagram already reached out to me about them and told me that Shendrones squirt V1 ducts should be compatible with this one too, that's something I need to find out later.

haha This build is almost identical to my squirt V2 build almost to a part. Ive got 8 extra HGLRC motors because in my opinion they are the greatest 1407's ever made... I am going with a unify VTX though, but other than that its the same. I have mamba stacks in probably 5 builds now and I love them, only one DOA and one faulty 5v reg that i managed to fix with a new surface mount transistor. Got me thinking about the MegaBee frame now though because i fly the Iflight Vector and its my favourite freestyle frame. What made you go with the Iflight instead of the Shendrone?

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..
