I wanted to change frame from old ChilliFpv Kelpie to something new and with more space, CineRat came out to be the best thing for me.
Arms are super strong and there is more space for battery and easier to desing a custom gopro mount.
AUW is around 510g with 850mah 4s.
Average flight time around 3min.

In the future I'm planing to change motors to xing 1408 / 1507 and put 6s on with FlightOne.
Happy Flying!

Hey im a bit late to the party do you have pids for this tho. I have No clue what im doing and im just running stock betaflight pids on 4s with 4100kv motors and the motors get pretty hot. cheers!!

Hi mate, could I know what are you filtering and pids?
I just finished building it and I just did a test fly for like 20 seconds and the motors are burning hot.
Xing 1507 2800kv
Im using 6s 1300mha( I know its super heavy) but should be fine as would be even heavier with a gopro 8 and 6s 850mha, and I have seen on YouTube people flying 1050 6s with gopro 8.

Why the move to 6s? Not enough power on 4s? I am curious cuz I am trying to decide between 4s and 6s. I just want a good 3 in freestyle quad that can carry an HD cam.

more power + I want to move from 4s to 6s with all my kwads

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..
