This build comes in at about 278g with everything except lipo. This is my main racing build and it is an absolute tank. Not the lightest, but very durable and replacement parts are readily available. The Xnova Lite 2207 is very powerful and light. 1950kv is a good number for both 5s and 6s setups. Just use different rate profiles with different throttle caps.

You could save about 4g not using the sma extension and using an uFl antenna. Another 4g could be saved if you don't use a crossfire immortal antenna. You could also use a lighter battery strap without the kevlar stitching. Each arm brace is 5g. So if you want to build it lighter, there is an opportunity to get it down to the 265g range, but this will be at the expense of durability. I originally built it without arm braces, but IMO I think the added durability is worth the weight.

The uploaded picture is with different props, uFl antenna and no rear arm brace. I will add some current pictures later.

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..
