I designed the KDrone V1 5zoll Racer (Prototype) based on the TBS core and used parts from different other manufactures to complete my builds.

My design goals for the frame were to maintain light weight, with max durability and good accessibility for easy maintenance.

  1. TBS Cube with zmx X25 2300KV (Betaflight 2.8.1)
  2. SP Racing F3 with DYS XS 30A ESC and ZMX X25 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  3. AIO Board HGLC F3 V4 http://bit.ly/2h6YrNj with Cobra Champion 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  4. Revo F4 with Racerbee 30A ESC and RCX2400KV Motors (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  5. no name F3 Board with DYS XS30A and ZMX X20 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)

To demonstrate, the frame can adapt to a variety of different internals, I build 5 different versions so far by always using the same frame but different electronic parts beside VTX and TX and the camera.
I used as VTX the TBS Unify and as TX the TBS Crossfire micro receiver. The HS1177 was used to supply the video feed to my FPV goggles.

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..
