I've really been liking having a GPS on my Armattan Badger so I decided to build another 6 inch quad with a GPS as well. I looked at several 6 inch frames but so many of them are overpriced for what you actually get. I ended up going with a 6 inch SabotageRC Dingo since their frames are really Armattan frames just without a warranty. This is a great little frame and for $39 you really can't beat it.

I again used the Matek F722-SE F7 along with separate Spedix ES30 HV 3-6s BLHeli_S DShot600 30A ESCs. The GPS is the Matek M8Q-5883 GPS Module w/ Compass, it's working great for GPS Rescue mode and flight data.

I drew and printed the GPS / VTx antenna mount, arm guards, camera mount and the 2 piece GoPro Hero7 mount.

The rest of the build is fairly standard components consisting of a Runcam Micro Eagle, Xing 2207-1700kv motors, Rush Tank Ultimate VTx, Crossfire Nano Rx and Matek buzzer.

What's the AUW on this puppy?

Sure, that'd be great. So technically not AUW. And if you weigh it without battery, what lipo would you typically run on this build? Thanks!

Without the GoPro7, mount and battery it weighs 393.4 grams.  I'll be using 1300 - 1800mAh 5S packs.

I really like this build. Looking at options for a 6" cruiser with GPS... are you able to get footage without props in view? And what kind of flight times are you seeing?

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..
