No, I dont' have the STl files. No, I can't print you one. Yes, the shop and link below is legit. It was shipped in a timely manner to me. He has some lead time issues on carbon right now (april 2020) due to the world shutting down (thanks pandemic). But if you are patient, and you order (or have ordered) a frame kit, you will receive one.

The frame is PETG, and several internal printed parts/mounts are TPU. Build went together nicely, though I had to lengthen almost every wire I've got to make things work. When I get the PIDS tuned up to where I like, I will post them here. I took the guts out of this build and went from there.

I am running a motor/prop combo that I like on 7" with this particular battery, which is not based on the R4 specification that DRL uses.

With this particular setup (gopro, 2200mah 5s lipo, LEDS, everything) I am at 1132gm in the air.

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..
