CHANGELOG:
v1.1.1:
Urgent bugfix:
I had to tape up the power wire coming out around the side of the top plate (taped that one up a bit too) since the sharp edge managed to cut through the silicone insulation to the wire. In retrospect: there is more than enough room to lead the power wires up from behind the camera to avoid this. I might do that in the future.

v1.1.0:

  • Updated HD mounts and camera uprights to support Hero9 Black
  • Updated platypus
    -- to support the Bardpole instead of the vertical ImmortalT
    -- Removed integrated VTX shelf to instead use this
  • Replaced the hind ImmortalT with the TrueRC Bardpole whip
  • Replaced the stripped Predator4 with a full case Predator5

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!

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
