This started out as just a stock Mobula7, but a bunch of things were improved or replaced after crashes.

I want to fly this mostly on 1S, but the stock configuration (even with some decent tuning) was useless and almost unflyable on 1S (lots of crazy wobbles and bouncing and generally felt very underpowered).

Here's the most important changes:

  • 3-blade props instead of 4-blade for increased flight time
  • 1S 650mAh instead of 250mAh for increased flight time (fits perfectly into the frame)
  • props out instead of props in to get rid of yaw washout
  • 19000KV motors instead of the stock 16000KV because 16 felt very underpowered for 1S (would probably even go with 22000KV if I would do this build again)
  • JHEMCU Play F4 board because the original Crazybee board died
  • FrSky XM for increased range (and because the JHEMCU FC doesn't come with an SPI receiver built in)
  • XT30 connector instead of the stock PH2 for improved flight time and less voltage sag

The following settings helped too:

Overall, those changes allow me to fly for about 5-6 minutes with lots of throttle. Flies very stable, no wobbles, even without much tuning.

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..
