This is a shout out to Dave_C_FPV for bring out another great frame. I had this made as soon as I saw it. I took another approach on motor selection thou. Takes little to no effort to get this thing to hover. I feel this build will be very lipo friendly. I do not have a scale @ the moment due to issues, but I can says its very lite. Cant wait to get her broke in proper!!

Hah! I knew it when I saw it (2204 Hyperlites on a Dave_C frame). I could tell because I too push that combination. I love how mine flies (light and fast), whadda you think 'bout this one?

I barely push the gas and she goes lol

Yep... that's what mine's like! Sometimes ya get a "perfect combination" and the results are so dramtaic (in comparison to your other rigs) that you can't help but wonder what the "big difference" really is. Now I fitted the ARS-5 frame with a really vertical canopy (QuadStarDrones ARX-R), and that lightweight, short stator build actually feels like its "true ARX-R" brethren (in other words... I can get it going pretty dang fast).
The world of building quads never gets old. :)

That is aweaome!! Yeah cant wait to see how fast she goes. And no building rigs never does lol.

Really nice build! How is the TPU part for mounting the battery strap working out? I had the same idea but didn't have time to test it yet :-D

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..
