Simple enough build. I wanted to make this as clean as possible.
All wires are nicely curled and at the shortest length with a small amount of slack
Motor wires have a nice nylon mesh sleeve
Motor skids give enough clearance for the immortal T antenna mounted on the belly

First quad with crossfire too so will be fun to play with that once winter is over.
Also added a microphone under the FPV camera (Just visible in the first pic)

Extra 3D printed parts:

  • Internal VTX antenna mount
  • Go Pro 20 Degree Couch (Designed by me)
  • Motor Skids (Made a bit taller)

i made them a bit thicker so the T antenna wouldn't scrape the ground

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..
