My Super G+. Fun fact: this is actually the first Super G+ to ever fly; Jordan gave me the prototype frame and I happened to have time to build and maiden it before he did. It worked so well, the first revision was what ended up going to production. Since then I've swapped out some parts, so I've listed the new parts here (unify HV, and hobbywing 60A). I love this quad for carting a gopro around at range. :)

Hi bensonk! Thanks for sharing your SuperG build! I'm working on it right now. Where can I find that GPS/antenna holder?
Thanks in advance, Simone.

These are designed by nxgraphics, you can download them here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3238638

Love the Frame.
But I'm noticing their website doesn't have the 3D printed mounts for the Cam and Antenna/GPS.
Can you buy those elsewhere or do you need a 3D printer?

bensonk   Oct 24, 2019 

You can get the printed antenna mount from airbladeuav.com: https://www.airbladeuav.com/products/airblade-crossfire-immortal-t-antenna-mount?variant=19657188999230 -- it's originally designed by airblade, and he prints and sells them. The GPS mount is a community thing designed by the awesome dude behind nxgraphics.ca. If you know anybody with a printer, it's in this bundle: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3238638

thank you so much bro for advice & share that, you're right about the OSD hopefully dji will bring that features to the next update. they should have it not everyone would like to use minimal display.

but i have last question bro, let say Im using gps like BN220 on my dji setup. like you said it doesnt show us the navigation, but how about the rescue mode? is it still can be activated. do you have any advice about it

bensonk   Oct 21, 2019 

Like I said above, I don't think you should use rescue mode. It works a lot of the time, but the times it doesn't work could be very bad. It's an interesting thing to experiment with as an advanced feature, but for your long range rig that you want to be really reliable, please don't use it.

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..
