My 2S Li-Ion Long Range Micro Reverb has been sitting unused for months after I pulled the FC for a wing project. When the BH 2004 were announced, I thought they'd make a great upgrade for the Micro Reverb to start using it on 3 and 4S and hauling cameras. I'm still surprised how right I was. These motors are fantastic with 4" tri-blades! 7 Minutes with Session and 850 4S. 5 Minutes with Hero and 650 3S!

Have you tried with 2s 18500 / 21700 cells ?
Im looking to build a 2s Li-ion Foldable 4" with caddx vista. currently im thinking about the Flywoo nin 1404 4850kv motors, but the BH looks nice !

Hi mate, nice build here. I'm trying to build similar to it. Cannot find the gopro standard mount you have there.

Nice looking build. Is this more for freestyle or cinematic flights?

I intended it for cinematic flights but it actually has quite a punch on 4S even with a hero or session on board. I'll be seeing what it can do and uploading video soon. :)

Seems like a good rig for a Hero8. Should be able to handle the weight no problem.

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..
