I'm no racer but awefully curious in this frame. I love the use of the moulded cover and the front end in complete TPU is pretty cool, albeit a bit ugly.

I'm using 7000kv motors so will try this out in 2s first. I have some 450 gnbs and 550 chnl that fit in the battery bay perfectly.
The RPM of 7000kv on 2s vs the spec build at 4600kv 3s is almost identical. The power curve might be different though.

The betafpv AIO F4 12A FC only has 2x 5v pads limited at 1a so I decided to skip the LEDs. I'm already running the cam,rx & vtx off of two pads.. I'd probably need to run a 5v BEC to hook them up later.

The flywoo goku nano vtx isn't a good fit here. I had to cram it in there so if you're spec'ing out a build, don't use it for this frame unless you want to mount it on top of your FC instead of the given TPU shelf that goes in the back.

maiden flight got cut short. racer nano has a loose connection. also was getting massive amounts of noise. Put in a cap and the noise is gone. Swapped out the nano racer for a nano 2 (inferior but works) and video now looks super clean. looks like the wire inside the silicon shielding broke right near the stress relief glue. This is a new camera! c'mon runcam...get your act together.

swapped out the cam for a caddx ant
added some leds (only had two strips)
and got the insta360 go print as well

dusted this off and got some packs in. finally got some decent rates that are kind of close to what I'm used to on betaflight. The yaw is very sensitive though. Also notice the strength of the pids falcox maintains even at very low throttle, just before zero. To get float you really have to consciously shove the throttle down to zero. still get some flutter with quick snaps so there is more to be tuned...except hard to know where to start with falcox being a whole new system to me.

Hi, Did the aio last? 12A seems to close to the limit.

so far so good!

It's in my cart! haha. I'm still trying to sort out VTX/Camera issues. Plus you're not shipping until the 1st of September :P

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..
