This thing is a indoor freestyle legend! One of my favorite whoops so far.

Some comments about the build:

It's a pretty straight forward whoop build. The camera wire is very tight the way I have it ran, I wouldn't normally do this, but the canopy is super stiff so i'm not too worried about it moving and snapping. Plus it looks clean.  The motor wires are super long since they were used for a 75mm frame, so I mounted them with the wires facing out and twisted them to avoid having a lot dangling underneath. I normally wouldn't cover the underside of the motors because I like to do wall taps, but the batteries in this build hang the lowest. Lastly, I ran a bead of Welders glue up the back-side of the canopy where it meets the camera and used that glue to hold the vtx antenna with just enough length to sit in the antenna clip on the canopy. 

Additional Notes:
If you like to be an indoor acro basher like me, I'd suggest running a ziptie at the back of the frame where I have. This helps to keep your battery lead from popping off. Make sure to leave some slack on the lead from ziptie to fc.

I also put a dab of liquid electrical tape on the battery lead solder points. 

The 2x1s battery holder I have is originally from BetaFPV. It's 3D printed TPU. Available here: https://betafpv.freshdesk.com/helpdesk/attachments/27019872587

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..
