hand drilled ;)
precision-ish cuts
capacitor stuffed in there
props need to face up on these pushers.. getting them onto the motor shaft was crazy hard with these props specifically... 30mm were a pain.. some of these i had to manually open up a little to get them on and then push like hell...

Alas... there is no escape from zipties to preserve my antenna
Used an old scrap of wetsuit material and double sided tape for the battery area. not recommended. its not really that sticky but does make the battery feel comfortable.
33 grams

I reversed all of my motors because of the wiring, and the thought i need to set motors to be reveresed in BF. I would set my motors to reverse then BF to reverse, the to normal and in BF normal. I was actually setting it and overridding it in the same pass, no matter how I flipped the switch... live and learn. Document so I don't do it again :)
its late and I can only fly so much in my house. Tomorrow is outdoors full test! :D

I went out this morning for a test flight. On 1s it was pretty mediocre. On 2s it was super fun for short time. landed and bounced into the dog's water bowl :(

we see soon if i need to rebuild.

Im not clear how i got this lucky, but it seems to run fine. I am eating through batteries though. about 1min on 2s and 1.25 on 1s.
These are not the freshest power sources.

Turned out to be a crappy fc ... rip

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..
