I wanted to reuse my existing emodia frame and build it with DJI Digital FPV system.

I painted the frame all white and used black as the other main color. Also added few red wires highlighting the motor and power wires.

I would have liked to make this build a bit slimmer but DJI camera forced me to use quite tall standoffs.
Really like how this black-and-white build turned out. It looks good and DJI Digital FPV is really good!!!

Custom 3D parts created for this build:

  • DJI antenna mount that fits Emodia frames antenna slot.
  • Camera mounts
  • DJI Air Unit mount that ensures air flow underneath the unit to to keep it cool.

Hey! I love your quad design and I'm rebuilding it. Got all the parts except for the 3d printed parts. Got myself a 3d printer but I suck at designing stuff at the moment. Would it be possible for you to share your .stl files? Would be greatly appreciated! You can email them to verheijen.webdevelopment@gmail.com if you want ofcourse.

How you paint it? Last time I tired it with acryl paint and it is runs off..

Just used normal rattle-can spray paint. (I think its solvent based so it sticks well and dries fast but not sure if its acrylic. I'll need to check that.).
Have also used spray paint cans in previous buils with success:

They are all holding their colors really well and colors don't peel off.

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..
