Ziptie25

Inspired by Quad66's ziptie builds. I took an old frame, put the lightest possible components on it, and finagled a zip tie canopy with the OV231 nano cam. I also tried the HQ 2.5in bi-blades again and I just can't with them. The pitch feels all weird. So I put the Emax Avan Rush props on and it's much better now.

The zip tie canopy is so cool. Too bad the camera kinda sucks.

Update: I previously said I was using the Runcam Nano 3. Turns out I'm actually using the OV231. They're easy to mix up. I'll rebuild this in the future with a new frame and a proper runcam.

So far so good. The VTX antenna is a bit wiggly. I had to put some hot glue on the ufl but the rx antenna is solid after many crashes.

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..
