Finally upgraded my analog Marmotte to digital with the Caddx Vista and Nebula Pro. The build was surprisingly easy to complete but does require that you 3D print custom parts to fit things properly. At some point in the future Ill likely upgrade this to 6S but for now its a 4S only build due to the motors. Detailed part list is below and also some links to the files I used on Thingiverse.

Still waiting for my V2 goggle pre-order so coming soon. I did test with a buddies setup though and it flies great!

Nice! I really like where you put the gps...how is that working out for you?

Sweet! This is almost exactly what I want to build. Does the Vista have the same wiring harness/cable as the DJI air unit? I see that there are FCs that are "made for DJI" with a simple cable connection but all of the pics show it connected to an air unit.

I think the order of the pins is a little different so youd have to check the vista solder pads to make sure they match your FCs DJI port pin layout.

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..
