Hi to this awesome community! First post build here.

This buld is very similar to thanks to Samw85! but using latest Sanchez Air frame thanks to David_C!! It is intended for analog set-up but I could not resist to give a try with Vista.

Canopy thanks to BludzFPV! It is a prototype I recommend to increase the thickness on the laterals as it is quite tight and during the asembly I broken accidentally one side...being in TPU with the solder I fuse it and restored :-)

Build is very simple as just fit the vista with the camera into the canopy, solder motors and vista conections and use 3 bolts M1.6 to fit both parts toguether

Just finished footage will follow

Amazing! How does it fly with your combination of 1202.5 motors and 2s battery? Does it have enough power? The kv seems a bit low for 2s, no? Also, how is durability? I would be very afraid of crashing with that super thin frame, haha. Here is my WIP build for comparison: 1204s on 3s with a sturdy 3mm frame.

Good to hear yours flies well. I have no jello except at 4s with sharp turns. I used m1.6 bolts up to the upper part of the vista. Seems that canopy is not stiff enough. I will order 3016 to test them thanks!!. Thanks for the video and canopy link!! I was not aware of Bludz! he noted the same reinforced haha!. I get around 4.5 min on 2s 450 with light acro. If i push I go up to 3min. 1404 is perfect for racing looking the video!! I think the more equilibrate motor maybe could be 1204 or 1303 at 3s. Depends on the pilot...for me I prefer more relax flying and 1202.5 are let say lower limit...but versatile as can carry from 2s to 4s. Cheers!!

I update the right props, 3" 3018 in the

I noticed the oscillations and jello only happen if I use a big battery (750mah 3s) and press-fit my props (no screws). So I'll try screwing my props next time I go fly. 1404 motors are way too big and too heavy for this kind of light build in my opinion, except if you want to race. 1303s should be a great fit, but they are still almost 2g heavier than the 1202.5s! So you would add 8 grams to the build... I want to test the following combination next: 1202.5 5800kv, 550mah 2s/3s, and possibly a lighter frame (my current one weighs 12g...)

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..
