This will be my first run at using the new FETTEC gear. All of my past kiss builds have been kiss v2's with individual kiss 32amp esc's on slammed aliens which had proven to be an extremely reliable, durable, and great flying platform. I've refused kiss 4in1 becuase of how many fires i see people post about; maybe its user error or maybe its poorly designed in general, either way, im going with FETTEC. With Felix breaking away from flyduino and starting FETTEC, this is the new hotness in the KISS world. I suspect to see new and better KISS boards coming from FETTEC for the foreseeable future. Flyduino has basically been radio silent since late 2017 or early 2018, seemingly.

Running this badass APEX frame from ImpulseRC. going all out with the Apex Regulator, Apex OSD, Apex racewire, Apex LED's, Apex Ummagod battery pad! this frame is extremely top notch. I am always impressed and pleased with ImpulseRC. you pay a premium and you get a premium product. You truly get what you pay for when you buy an ImpulseRC frame.

I am super excited to see what FETTEC does and hope they stick around pumping out new kiss products.

Need your quad tuned? Sick of tinkering with settings and just want to concentrate on flying?! I got you!

This is such a clean build bro. Looks like a dream!

Bigredram87   Apr 10, 2021  

krunked, did you just cut your m3 board standoffs? it looks liek you using the anti vibration standoffs which im using but some of the pictures show the long stock 20mm m3 just curious how you did that

Krunked   Apr 10, 2021 

old.pics.. u use the shortest m3 stack screws

Bigredram87   Apr 10, 2021 

oh cool i didnt realize came woth shorter ones :) did you vista amd spike absorb a apex yet?

Danbooj   Jun 15, 2020  

does fettec have a built in osd or do you need all of the stuff from the normal kiss build? like the osd and the pdb in the back

Krunked   Jun 15, 2020 

no it does not. im using the APEX OSD, and the APEX REGULATOR to power everything for ultra clean video.

Danbooj   Jun 15, 2020 

thanks, also have you had any issues with escs burning out

Krunked   Jun 15, 2020 

no sir-- i have 8 kiss rigs and not a single one has burned up -- i have 3 apex's now, fully fettec, and havent hurt anyhting even with really high kv motors

johnwhip   May 31, 2020

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..
