Super clean build. Really like the the Antenna setup. I'm planning on using the VAS 915MHz mini's on my Super G build. What did you use for the antenna mounts (VAS)? Did you machine something custom? Or did you use something like a Steel mending plate and bent it at an angle?

Thanks! I fabricated the antenna mounts myself from a .6mm aluminum sheet and a 1.5mm black plastic sheet from Amazon. Both can be easily cut with household scissors. The aluminum mounts are attached to the frame with screws. The plastic mounts are between the aluminum mounts and the antenna. The plastic mount is to avoid having to mount the antennas on metal as it would mess with the antennas performance.

Very cool, I like the "V" orientation. Reminds me of the F22 Raptor. You could also 3d print a mount for those VAS antennas instead of plastic/metal. Do you know how the antennas compare with the Bardpole or TBS tuned antenna?

why not list motors and props? are they that bad? lol

they are not bad but they have been discontinued a while . Rotorbuilds can't find a link for the DJI snail 2305 motors and prop.

Personally, I prefer distsnce over speed.
Long range control, long range video with good frame rate are tops.
Love the build, and keep those antennas upright.

Wow this maybe the cleanest build I have seen when taking into account the size and all its features. Are you not running a gopro on it? or did you remove it to make it look cleaner.

Thanks! I love building almost more than flying lol. I used to have gopros on my quads. My flying style is pretty boring, no one was interested in watching my recordings. I just sold them and bought some quad parts.

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..
