gone digital!
turned out the same weight as the analog build at 74g (analog was 73g)!
the difference between the analog build would be the unify pro32 nano, crossfire nano, mounting board, linear vtx antenna, crossfire antenna and antenna tubes
the decased vista has all the alloy heatsinks removed except I broke off four the spacers from two of the plates to reuse. the blue thermal goop was incredibly annoying to remove (didn't fully)
since i'm using the dji fpv controller as well I just need one antenna and I'm using a lightweight lumenier AXII LHCP.
more weight can be lossed in a few more places

footage forthcoming!

got 5 flights in! Here is a 3s flight. flying so well. needs a tiny bit more tuning. the nebula looks great in the goggles actually but the DVR is pretty shabby. will be touching base with Caddx to see if I can get a v2 in exchange or something.

trying out the emax Avan rush props with 1.9mm pitch. much quieter and very smooth except i'm now getting mid throttle oscillations. I've ordered some new gemfan hurricane 2512 to try next.

--11th October 2020
giving the new gemfan 2512 a go. super low pitch. louder than the rush and quieter than the t65. Not as responsive as the t65 but smoother. it's a good balance. need to fly a few mor packs to really know but I like them more than the rushes on this setup at least as there are no mid-throttle oscillations

how tall is that stack with the stripped vista?

daich   Oct 06, 2020 

really wish I have my calipers but I'm abroad at the moment. Id guess around 10mm. it's not that much smaller than the original...just a lot lighter. In fact the spacers are the original spacers which I broke off the corner of the middle heatsinks so for sure the height is pretty close to original.

That was a long smooth flight! Very nice. So what is the final weight of this as flown on the video?

daich   Oct 05, 2020 

Thanks! Yeah, surprisingly long flight. With the 450mah 3s it's 121g

finally   Oct 06, 2020 

450mah 3s it's 121g, this is safe weight, happy wheels

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..
