My friend designed his own frame so I had to do one when the final version was ready. It's sturdy and I like how it looks. It will actually be extra thicc next time he cuts it. Linked his IG as the frame part. This guy. If you want one, bug him about it. :)
This motor/prop combo feels great on 4 and 5s on this build. I'm pretty laid back on the throttle though. Great altitude control. I'm actually going to put some old RDQ BADASS motors on this to just send it. These motors will go to more of a cinematic mid range build. I wasn't sure, so I spooled up the wire on this build.

Update: Just put StanFPVs molded 5" (4" props) ducts on this thing. I like this a lot. Still has some chooch, but it can slide around and bump into stuff. :)

Just put some up. Need to make a comparison video of 4s and 6s, ducts and no ducts. I like this one a lot with the ducts. Totally unplanned but if it fits, I rips. :)

Definitely! I think it looks even better with the ducts, and I loved the way it looked before.

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..
