I want to use iNav in my LR quad. That requires a compass, which is missing in BN-220 gps module. Got BN-880 and awesome Matek's F722-PX FC to try. So actually old Badger got partially rebuilt.

As compass is very sensitive to any nearby currents, I couldn't put it on the arm as I usually so. Have to design a rear mount for it.

Weight without battery and GoPro: 395g

Waiting for maiden and endurance measure.

UPDATE 2020-05-28: Got Twist-Lock plate cut from 3mm carbon fibre.

UPDATE 2020-06-03: Rear mount still caused problems with magnetometer. Too much electronics and motor's magnets are affecting on it. So had to put it on the mast above the quad. I had 9x5mm CF pipe, so modelled a mounts around it. See photos below.

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..
