New build in the brand new Diatone Innovations GT X549 Exorcist racing frame. The goal for this build was to have a strong, lightweight 6s racer with top of the line equipment, no compromises. I think the parts were matched perfectly for this build and so far it has been flying amazing!

I bought two of these, Broke one.. The other one has the $10 braces on the arms to keep it in one peice. I also have a 3d printable version of this frame I designed you can check out here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4053878

Awesome frame!

I have your lead shot as my phone lock screen.

I wanted to know what the intent was with the frame design. Was it to bring the props towards the center of the body so that you have a better balance between all axis?

PLUS being a tank against crashes?

I'm taking this as a personal compliment and not in regards to the build whatsoever ;)

That frame is one of the most beatifful ever made IMO. Although probably not practical enough to be used in competion by amateur pilots.

What kind of tape is that on the motor wires

what a nice frame, but, ehm :) not so nice build i mean cable management should be nicer.

jonbuckles   Jun 28, 2019 

It's mostly because the motor wires are gray and adding sleeving would just be adding uneeded weight. I routed them this way to keep distance from the props ;)

It's a pretty frame viewed in isolation but I'd never thought about the cable management when built, shape does make it a little more awkward to get it clean looking! Still, looks like a great build, how's the stiffness compared to a conventional flat carbon rig?

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..
