This is probbaly one of the cleanest builds I've done to date. I had alot of fun trying to route the wires nice and tidy. My only gripe about this build is the frame, for paying 90+ dollars I had to sand down all the edges with wetsand paper. I would figure paying for a premium frame it would come finsihed. Aslo I need to do something about the 10g battery pad it came with. I flew it today and I am really pleased with the performace and it is getting 3-4 minutes on a 1300-1500mah 4s battery.

9/1 bought some Ummagrip made for the Apex frame and lost 3g over the origial battery pad. It's alot stickier than the stock one and does't smell like a car tire :)

a couple before questions but first super clean build ..
I am going to be using dji controller and goggles but had a question about the TBS Crossfire Nano RX - FPV Long Range Drone Receiver
is that usable with those items also I'm using the newbeedrone fc/sc hope this question makes sense

Thanks! As long as the Newbeedrone FC has two open UARTS on the flight controller you can use TBS crossfire and the DJI system. If you are not sure look up the wiring diagram of the Newbeedrone flight controller and you will be able to tell how many UARTS it has.

Use some Ummagrip Lite?

Anyway, looks amazing!

I had some Ummagrip lite but it wasn't thick enough. The tops screws were poking out so the battery would rest on the screws. I ended up buying the ummagrip made for the Apex and I lost 3g it's better than nothing. Thanks though!

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..
