Just a simple Reverb build, nothing too fancy... As usual tried to use high quality components and tried some new stuff like the new TBS Pro32 VTX ( that missed the photo shoot ), the smaller KISS 25A ESCs, the Foxeer Predator Mini V4 and the Azure JohnyFpv props.

Named the build Blackfish since the previous reverb I owned drowned on a river just two weeks after building it. :) Hope it gives it good luck!

KISS V2, F40 Pros III 2400 motors, all black wiring - not a single colored wire in order to make those in-field repairs a bit more fun!
460grams without Lipo.

Only challenge of the build was to fit all the components on the stack. The TBS Pro32 is a litlle bit thicker than the normal Unify I usually use and really had to use low spacers to make it fit. It clears the top plate by just half milimeter.

Cheers!

Here's a couple of packs with it!

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..
