This is the original weemix frame with new rails that bring camera further forward so less prop in view.
I've been flying this setup in 3s and T65 biblades with no issues. It's super beastly and loud.
The diamond vtx dvr eventually burned out the 5v BEC so I had to put in an external 5v regulator made by Pololu

Now I've ditched the diamond vtx for the non dvr version from eachine trashcan and I've added a insta360 go mount and have gone triblades. probably stick to 2s like this.
I've also mounted the front TPU print on the underside instead of the top side of the main plate to give a wee bit more tolerance on take off due to the underslung front motors. In this config, it allows the Insta360 Go to be mounted horizontally.

Have you had any durability issues with these motors? I've killed 3 of them in crashes with no visible damage, they just start twitching or not spinning properly.

which KV and 3 or 4 bolt?
these are 11,000kv 3 bolts so one of the very first runs of the kind. I've crashed this so many times and they are still going strong. I've also run them with HQ T65 props on 3s for like 12 packs and theu are absolute beasts

4 bolt 8000kv. I cut the heatshrink on them and all three of the broken ones had the middle wire broken off right at the stator.

thats a shame maybe they used too thin gauged wire for the higher kv variants (lower KV needs more windings)

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..
