I love it! :D Waiting for the frame to get back in stock!!!

Great looking build! I just ordered the parts to build one myself as soon as the frames are available again. Since the FC and frame are both pretty new and there isn't much out there yet, I thought I'd ask: did you run your camera's 5v and GND to the VTX or straight to the board? Going straight to the FC seems like it'd be cleaner, but on some of these AIOs it can cause noisey video. Thanks and have fun!

the camera power/ground is ran to the FC and I have a 5v regulator in mine to lower the VTX. I found the video too noisy if the camera and VTX eere powered from the FC.

Very cool build! Have you had any yaw washout from dives or is the mass low enough? I had issues with a cinebee a year or two ago but maybe cause mass was too high and my motors were only 0802 I think

Did you modify the mini immortal T for weight? Or to fit the frame? I love Gnarleyfpv

I haven't been able to fly it yet. It's been snowing since I built it :(.

@grannyG I got a chance to fly a few packs today. I wasn't overly aggressive with freestyle tricks, but I didn't just cruise around. It was cold outside when I flew those, so those times may be slightly lower than what you could normally expect.

  • 2 mins on a 300mah 2s
  • 3 mins on a 350 mah 2s
  • 3:30 on a 450 mah 2s

Nice outcome. Still working on the Guppy V3, but this one looks really nice. Waiting for them to come back in stock. And following you to see some flight footage. How long did the build take you?

Thund3r   Feb 16, 2021 

i think the build took two hours start to finish. I'll post some flight footage to YouTube once the weather improves.

nice build, was looking to get one of these frames but still sold out, What batteries are you going to run on it?

Thund3r   Feb 14, 2021 

probably 450 2s or 300 2s.

Have loads of 2S 450's myself was hoping theyd fit comfortably on the top plate, Is there much clearance behind the camera, Do you think you could have fit a Runcam Nano 2?

Thund3r   Feb 14, 2021 

There isn't much clearance behind the camera.

Awesome little build! I plan to do a build on this frame very soon myself.

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..
