What was in the Nutmeg became this Squirt. Then I got new motors and a new vtx.

Ive flown three packs so far just around the warehouse at work and am super happy with this quad on 6s. One 6s with these 2800kv motors I hover at about 20-30% throttle if that.

I will put together a quick youtube video soon.

Just ordered up a full rack of 750mah 6s batteries

How did you like the 3" duct props? I have been cutting down 4" and wanted your feedback. Also, what type of flight time did you get out of the 6s 750mh batteries?

gvngoheavy   Jun 01, 2021 

I think they are worth it. The consistency alone really makes it worth it to me. Ive moved on from this build to a cinesplore. I keep a variety of different props on hand but the HQ 8 bladed duct props have stayed on my cinesplore the longest. In the end the props are the sprinkles on top of the cupcake. If I want more stable slow flight Ill go with more blades, I keep the triblades for faster bigger move flights, but to each their own.

6s 750mah batteries gave me around 3min of slowish flight.

Did you print the GoPro / Antenna mount? Trying to find a place to buy one. Do you have a link to where I could get one? That is exactly how I would like to mount my Crossfire antenna. Awesome looking build!

sooo the GoPro mount is just the shendrones mount. I shoegoo'd the antenna onto the back of the mount. When I get a tango 2 ill modify the model to include an antenna holder... till then goo it up!

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..
