I chose to go with Apex Racing 1303.6 7777kv so I could get good performance out of 2s and 3s for around the block ripping. No issues or anything really noteworthy with the build. Things went together pretty well. I did use finger lock nuts and a TPU VTX/FC spacer which worked out really well. The UFL antenna that came with the VTX was trash and all I had on hand was a Rush Cherry auxi UFL antenna. However it worked out really well. Currently have the VTX set to 200mw and have no issues racing around my place. I did do a range check at 400mw and its is almost comparable to TBS 400mw.

2/26 Update
Neglecting build notes here as Ive been waiting for something to give on this and force me to decommission this build for an updated one which I already have the parts for but will require stripping this build. This AIO will be moved to a new build and replaced with a 13amp AIO. I will also be swapping out 2mm carbon for 3mm. I have had one damaging crash on this build which bent a motor pedestal and tweaked an arm a bit. Ive been flying the crap out of it since then and even though prop alignment is visibly off with one motor I have seen no other noticeable issues in flight or performance. I do have a replacement motor just in case though. I’m not sure if I will be keeping the VTX/DVR combo even though I have three becuase I've started to favor the eachine nano v2 for all of my micros.

awesome build I have the jhemcu pro 35A and was wondering if you were able to get it flashed to betaflighg 4.2 and if so what was the target you used I had to use flywoo411

Thanks it us a fun one! I was just flying it this morning so was already out for me to check. Tried to add a screen capture to the reply but for whatever reason its not attaching. Configurator: 10.7.0 Firmware: BTFL 4.2.0 Target: JHE/JHEF411 (STM32F411) Sorry I do not recall what it came flashed with but I do recall when I did the update it auto-populated the target for me and I only had to adjust the version drop down. Hope that helps and happy rippin.

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..
