My learner "aint care" whoop. Recently updated from BetaFPV M01 AIO Cam+Vtx to a diamond vtx with axii micro antenna and caddx eos2 camera. I gained 5g with this update which is ok for now but this is not the final form.

I drilled out the molded in board standoffs and used some m2 screws so I could use more popular twig canopies to make this easier to work on. They are currently steel screws which will be converted to titanium soon in an effort to get the weight back down. Ill also be going to a little lighter battery setup and ultimately be back down to the original weight while adding a higher output vtx and dvr functionality.

I used Dave_C FPVs gatehunter canopy printed with 6% infill and trimmed out the bottom to clear the HappyModel Diamond vtx dvr unit.Also rx and antenna have been repositioned since those images were taken. They are much cleaner now. and without zipties so the weight has hopefully gone back down a little.

Once the replacement motor comes in Ill get some flight footage and post it up.

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..
