This is an old build running a kk2 board and simonk escs
I have decided to put an omnibus f4, run INAV for some GPS stuff and added a servo at the bottom cuz y knot : D

notes:

  1. these motors are not the ones I'm using. Use the ones you prefer (who knows, maybe even a 2510!!)
  2. the FPV system is one that i had laying arround I added a camera that IMO works well and is cheap and the video transmitter is the one I'm using (just don't... use a better one)

IDK how is it going to fly •_•

I'll keep you updated

08/07/2020: I finished setting it up, it arms and ... the servo works (wooo) I'm test flying it someday.

best drone for capture real time imaging.

I couldn't agree more if the thing actually worked but it won't respond to stick commands (only throttle). The drone is an anarchist and goes wherever it wants to go :/

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..
