Very nice looking. Someone just provided feedback on how this frame may be better on 16xx motors. And bam...I found yours right after. A few questions...
What is the total weight without batteries?
Which batteries and props are you running?
What is the flight times you are getting?
Thanks, looking to build one soon, and want to pick the best components for best flight time on freestyle.

I'm 223 grams pre battery. Mostly use the RDQ 650 mAh, have been getting between 2 and 3 minutes flight time but I think that's mostly because of my props. I've been usin Avan 3060's. If you stuck to the gemfan 3028's you'll probably get closer to 3-4 minute flight time instead.

Also, these 1606's are nasty. My thrust to weight ratio is stupid. I flick the stick 60-70% and I'm 150 feet in the air. I could shove a 1000mah battery on the top of this and be flying no problems. In fact, I have a 1500mah that I use for my goggles. Maybe I should go try that...

In the description I wrote "Just a mockup to run weight numbers." Sorry if that was confusing, but I'm just writing out a build that I'm planning on purchasing and assembling. If I decide to build it, I will post pictures.

Than why post it as a build and not a mockup?

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..
