HD Long-range setup. The antennas and air unit are quite exposed but you don't want to crash in long range flight anyway. The long range in HD is something amazing. It weighs 335 grams.


Unfortunately it needs some tuning to get rid of the yaw twitches.

Hey - what is that stuff you used to secure your wires and GPS? I need to do something similar with my BN-220's

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..
