S800

First time building a wing from scratch. I think it came out great! Using iNav 2.5 with S800 preset default tunes it flies great! Flatout it pulls under 40 amps and hits about 99mph (104mph with a B6x4.5E). The 2" nails worked perfect for the canopy hinge; just tapped one in each side lightly with a hammer. The canopy seemed slightly undersized for my Hero 8 so test fit before you glue it in place. I ended up printing a Hero 8 blank scalled 101% all around, used a heat gun to heat up the canopy where it fits, and then just pushed/forced the 3d printed camera in. Once it cooled the actual camera fit great. Also, certain APC props (like the one I'm using) don't fit on quad motors like the F80 (the center of the pitch hits before the hub). I just used a plastic spacer in front of it to space it back a bit. Still had plenty of threads for the nut and it works fine.

I followed this build guide by NoAgenda FPV and then made my own customizations:

Where can i find the file for the Camera mount and gopro mount, i dont see it posted above, i only see the lid but not the actual mount

Everything you'd need is here (linked above):

The camera/gopro mount is there, just the file preview is not shown

Lanedaplane   Sep 15, 2021  

Will this mount hold a gopro Hero 9?

fiveomustang   Sep 15, 2021 

I do not think so. I found this online:
The Hero 9 Black measures 71x55x33.6mm and weighs 158g, the GoPro Hero 8’s is slimmer at 66.3x48.6x28.4mm and 126g weight.

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..
