Marmotte 2208 DJI/HD

Been flying for a couple of months and this is my first build. It's probably a little too powerful for where I'm flying but it is fun! On my second pack, I destroyed a prop and balancing wires on my battery so that sucked.


  • Anyone have any ideas where I can run the pigtail off the ESC? It won't fit below or above the air unit as I had originally planned :/
  • Stack screws are either too short or too long. See the washers at the bottom...
  • I spent an hour trying to get the battery leads to solder onto the ESC properly. I just couldn't get it hot enough because the compenents were sucking up all the heat. Anyone have any suggestions? I assume a nicer soldering iron would help but maybe I'm missing something basic.

nice and simple! dont trash the battery you cut the balance lead too, theyre pretty easy to fix. a friend of mine ran his battery lead out the back. im pretty sure its over the air unit but next time i see his quad ill take note and send you a pic.

I've not built this frame out, but a cool thing I see is: running the battery lead out the gap between the top plate and the camera housing. It probably requires that you re-do the cabling from the ESC to the FC, or re-assign motors using CLI commands. I haven't tried that in person, so I don't know for sure if it's as good as it looks.

yes, ooghee pointed out that i can rotate the esc and leave the fc pointing forward. not sure why i didn't think about that sooner :/ i'll post pictures ones updated!

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..
