This is my custom 4" plus-style toothpick.
It started as a 3" V-tail.. that failed, then I thought I would just put it on a new frame.. Now almost all parts are new xD
The frame is built to theoretically support the Caddx Vista system.. Though poor me only have analog so I cannot verify it.. YET!!

It flies like a dream! I love these motors! It feels much smaller than a 5" even though it flies very similar. It also is slightly less noisy.

I only got 8 packs in it before I got too brave and killed the AIO board in a(HARD) crash. I will figure out a way to protect the FC better in the final version of the frame.. But boy does it take a beating! I did not expect the frame to be as durable as it is!.
Orange pod is coming up as well!

Details:

  • Prop-free view from 20 degrees cam tilt.
  • Frame weight(Carbon, standoffs, Pod & LED's): 49 g
  • Dry weight(With props): 210 g
  • AUW(4s1300mAh): 377 g
  • Flight time(4s1400mAh): 6-7 min of smooth freestyle.
  • Ideal battery: 4s1100-1300mAh

Yes i will. I will update the design to protect the fc better during the next month or two. When done, the frame will be available on armattan productions and the pod will go on thingiverse :)

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..
