6s Fpvcycle Glide - Kabab Style

I set this glide up like how Kabab recommends and holy crap. It's a beast. This quad has power and responsiveness for days. Here are my thoughts on the parts I chose.

Fpvcycle Glide Frame
This frame is awesome! It's just under 100 grams but has 5mm arms with a smart mounting system in the center. The frame in general is really stiff, light, and has mounting for everything I need.

Talon GigaFusion Stack
The gigafusion stack is a combination of the Fusion F7 dual gyro fc and the Gigawatt 6s 35a esc. The gigawatt is a rebranded Aikon AK32PIN and in my experience it has worked perfectly. The flight controller has a very nice layout and all the pads I needed to use were on the top side of the board.

Rush Tank Mini VTX
Wow. I have honestly never had video as good as with this vtx. I don't know what kind of magic is inside there, but it's an awesome vtx.

Foxeer Micro Razer
This cam is only 17.90 but looks great. It has been wonderful to fly with so far. The fov is a little weird looking when doing flips/rolls but for the price I am very happy.

Amax ET2207 1750kv
These motors are incredibly powerful. The air gap is almost invisible and i'm really impressed with the fit and finish. I ordered these motors from Amax about 3 weeks ago but they were delayed because of coronavirus. They were listed on RDQ 2 weeks in so I decided to cancel my order and buy them there.

note - I bought the gigafusion stack for $72 on sale and the vtx was bought from someone else for $30.

how did you set up your FC? I'm having this issue where I would get video feed when I'm near my VTX. But the minute I rotate my goggles or move more than a feet away, I lose my feed. It goes static. I'm thinking its a Pitmode issue. What's your input?

I had an issue where the VTX and camera were not getting power at all. Turns out you have to enable a special mode in betaflight for it to turn on power to the vtx and cam.

If that doesn't help and your vtx is just in pitmode, i don't really know what to tell you. I have smart audio set up normally and i just uploaded a vtx table to it.

how is the control, thinking about building something like this with either emuflight or flightone

control is awesome... i am still able to lower my filters a lot. they are at stock right now and I know I can take them a lot lower. I can also improve my pids a bit but this thing already flies great

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..
