RX antennas are ziptied to the rear arms.

Use a fin to get better turtle mode. Brain3D sells them or you can print your own. A gopro mount will also work, this is just to lift the motors off the ground in the event of a crash because with a bottom mount battery the props can hit the ground while upside down.

Frontal impacts with the camera can cause it to shift back and knock the 4in1 connector off of the FC if you don't have a fixed camera mount, so I'd recommend printing or buying one.

I have 6 inch arms running 5 inch props.

Any issues with the camera sticking out so far? Currently building my first Floss and having the lens stick so far out is making me parinoid since I seem to break a lot of lenses.

Nope, not a single problem. Had one case where it went back into the stack and knocked my 4in1 connector off but that wasa crash directly into a flag. If you get a fixed camera mount it makes it a lot easier to prevent damage.

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..
