Love this frame, It's a bit on the heavy side but built like an absolute tank. This is the V0.2 so had to run the bottom plate reversed to fit the 20x20 stack in but the new V0.3 has 20x20 mounts front and back so no longer need to do this. V0.3 also has improved arms with a bit of shape to them in the middle. Prints can be found on thingiverse at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3847521

Running Betaflight 4.1 with RPM filters and she rips a treat. If only my flying skills could keep up .

That's pretty clever just flipping the bottom plate around. I've been looking into that fc. How are you liking the dual gyro fusion? Have you noticed anything from that feature or anything else with that fc that's interesting? Nice build, reminds me of kababfpv's layout in some of his videos.

Thanks, tbh I can't notice a difference. I went from the standard TalonF7 straight to that and it was identical noise profile. Good to have a spare gyro though in case you get a noisy one you could just turn it off and run with one. The actual FC is great, good layout and I like the VTX switching. Had a few problems getting it going in Betaflight but think those issues are sorted now. You have to setup vtx switching on a mode tab just to get the VTX to work at all and there was a problem with the motor outputs. The info's on the helination website if you end up getting one.

Thanks man, i like the look of that hyperlow vert u built. Interesting frame. love the xing motors so smooth. I just bought some of those tatu 75c packs for my 4S too but not that impressed. I got some of the 6S rlines for this one and they rock, should have just got some more of those.

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..
