Going for a 4" quad with the new KISS CompactCTRL "CC" and the new Swift 2!

The build was fairly easy. Having a AIO controller leaves you with plenty of space.

At an overhaul, I soft-mounted the motors and the "CC".

Why did you decide to use the Spektrum Receiver with Telemetry? Did you use the Telemetry for anything?

I've been curious about these receivers, but the cost is quite prohibitive. I just get FCs with OSD and that's good enough for me.

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.
