My first 6S build, tried to keep things clean. Wires remain at full length until i find the best configuration for video as far as vtx/cam power and ground sources go. Havent flown it too much but it felt nice with just stock 4.2 on it on the maiden. Added a capacitor after the pics were taken and everything seems nice so far as video goes as well.

Update: bridged the vbatt jumper on the cl racing board and i have the vtx powered off that. Cam is powered and grounded on the vtx and the video is really great even at full throttle punch outs.

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..
