Screech-R V2 with 30mm standoffs for more stack space. My cleanest build by far.

All electronics are neatly tucked into the 30mm stack, with the VTX and RX in a 30mm TPU combo holder on top.
CAUTION! Had one defective EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv! Luckily my paranoia saved me and I found the windings were shorted to the base screw holes and therefore the frame. Multimeter, learn to use it learn to love it. Reversed motor setup because racing.

Printed TPU Hoot Antenna holder from Thingiverse, which is really clean and protected.

I'm modeled an interchangeable Runcam 3s / Turtle mode arrow shaft mount for the top. The turtle mode arrow shaft works fantastic. Alternatively, I'm very happy with the HD cam angle (no props in view) and the balance is perfect. Will upload .stl to Thingiverse eventually.

Remaining tasks:

  • Install Racewire LEDs
  • Add motor wire mesh sleeve optional
  • Install battery pad
  • loctite everything

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..
