TinyTrainer HD with Caddx Vista and Nebula Camera

Other than using 23mm standoffs to give room for the Vista, no other modifications were necessary. AUW 160 grams with 3s 530 mAh lipo. Will test with 4s after printing a bigger battery pouch.

I found all 3! of your rotorbuilds while looking for a digital translation for my current 3" tadpoles that are running those same Xing 1404s, and hifionrc f7 FCs. The nano v2 cam I have tested in the tadpole seems to slightly stick past the cage, while this one is more protected, but I like the current flight style of my battery on top 3" analog tadpole quads (5" like freestyle flying) in locations where the 5" would be too loud. How do you compare the flight characteristics and durability of the 3 builds, and which is your favorite??? also any advise on them in comparision to a CX-3 frame that would allow the wider nebula pro cam with better quality but maybe noticibly heavier? Thanks in advance.

The Hornet is easily the best at freestyle. The Tiny Trainer is likely the most durable because of the added hard shell upper.

hey cappy, how does it fly compared to the stock analogue version does the extra weight hinder its performance much?

The extra weight seems to help it feel a little more locked in for freestyle. I haven't raced it, but it is a real screamer.

so your using the Betafligt settings and pids as per the build recomendations?

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..
