how did you mount the camera?
did you use a mount?

Hey so what does it run on? Betaflight? Cleanflight?

drmrb   Mar 19, 2017 

Running Betaflight. Flies pretty good already with stock settings.

Do you think something this small could handle a Mobius Mini? I'm curious how plausible it would be to record HD on one of these 2S quads.

Maybe Ill give it a try with 2s. Just placing a camera on top will not work though there is not enough space but some spacers with a smaller
footprint should do the trick.

Do you have a Mobius Mini?

drmrb   Feb 25, 2017 

yes. had a quick look. there is too little space on the top. in particular with my vtx placement.

Hey! Love this. What about the battery? Also for the battery connector to the FC (Emax STM32F303 F3) what I have to buy?

I am using 2S batteries with JST connectors in the 300 to 500 mah range with this build. For the JST connector you would need to solder something like that http://www.banggood.com/Amass-JST-Parallel-Line-60-Core-20AWG-Extension-Cable-10cm-p-1011808.html?rmmds=search to the board.

Ok, thanks! Another question, can I use this? LiHV Turnigy Bolt 500mAh 2S 7.6V 65~130C

Those should work fine.

I'm curious, how did you mount your FC?

no crashes yet. The frame is 2mm and feels like it should be able take some considering the overall weight of only 60 to 70 grams including the battery. If not then I'll order another one or try something more expensive like this one http://hoverbot.io/

I was looking at the Hoverbot as well. It looks like a nice frame, but it does come at a cost compare to this one.

drmrb   Jan 16, 2017 

Yes. The Hoverbot is cleaner to build with the frame being designed for these motors, e.g., more space for ESCs on top and matching standoffs for the flight controller. The price of the China frame is tempting though... if you don't mind some tinkering. I also like the very low profile of my build better with the camera in the front.

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..
