2nd 5 inch Build.
Not strictly a brand new build as it has evolved over the last year or so. I do think however I have found something I really like in this final build.
changed from a 4s 2450kv to a 6s 1800kv setup with 2207 Xing E motors.

changed from HQ V2S 5x4.3x3 to Dal Nepal (5143) to Ethix P3 (5130) props. I had tested a bunch of props back when it was on 4s and really liked the dal Nepal's. Since i have moved onto 6s i had not changed the props but decided to try a couple. I cannot say whether my own prefference has changed or it has something to do with the move from 4s-6s but i love the p3 props. Fantastic control with smooth, quick but controlable and even resolution throughout the throttle range. No throttle scale whereas i had been using 95% scale on the Nepal's. Its unfourtunate they do not look as nice but id much rather have better flying characteristics.

changed from a caddx ratel to the ratel 2 (lighter and better so why not).

I have changed all hardware to titanium (apart from the 4 on the top of cage) to save the odd gram (used to weight about 350g before). cannot seem to source 4mm m3's and cannot be bothered to cut them short.

Drone weight is now 338g with props. AUW with CNHL 6S 1100mah 100C is 544g

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..
