dRonin AutoTune w/DALProp T5050C on 4S @ 549g including GoPro.

I suppose if I smash it into a tree at the end of the maiden flight. Then fly another half a dozen packs and get it lost in the bush, I might as well publish it as a complete build. No props broken through all that. :)

The two pics on the scale are:

  • 4S1500mAh@443g
  • 6S1500mAh@539g

I've always wanted to build this frame. How do you like it? Is it the most nimble thing on 4 props?

With them 5050 Cyclone props it's very punchy and at 550g AUW w/GoPro it's about 100g lighter than most of my other builds. First time I got to feel what they say about lighter, powerfull quads, there's no momentum or throwability. From another perspective it just goes where you tell it when you tell it. tends to go to the moon from the slightest nudge on the throttle.

Yah, you could say it's the most nimble thing on 4 props.. ;)

I wouldn't recommend the SucceX stack I used. The vertical SMD pins must've broke on the last crash. The FC no longer powers up from the ESC/LiPo, USB still works. a cable interconnect is much more resiliant.

A. That sounds aweseome. B. I'm sorry to hear that your pins broke, that's a bummerito. I hope you can solder wires to the signal pads, I had to do that once and it was intimidating.

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..
