The frame for this build is the Splash by Jack's 3D Printing - it can be purchased through his Facebook group with all parts and the GoPro mount of your choice for $115 (there is no option to select this via the Rotorbuilds system due to his not having a storefront).

It's a pretty straightforward build, one idiosyncrasy being that I installed the FC/ESC stack backwards to accommodate situating the battery connector directly behind the GoPro. If you do this, you have to adjust some orientation parameters as well as do some resource shuffling in Betaflight, Joshua Bardwell has a great video on how to do this (thanks as always JB!)

Also a nice trick I picked up on the aforementioned Jack's 3D Printing group was adding a magnetic micro USB adaptor to the FC - makes connecting to my computer easy peasy despite the relative inaccessibility of the port once everything is assembled. I went with this set of cords, though didn't include it in the build list because I only used a few parts for this build:

Jack Higgins is not the designer of this cinewhoop.
He's just a manufacturer, who had access to the files and is now producing without authorization, and says it's his creation, it's a lie.

The designer / creator of the frame is Valter Silva

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..
