This build is a transfer of Meteor 75 lite that is included with BetaFPV Advanced Kit 2 to a Twiglet Mini 2" frame.

I wanted a frame without prop guards to get improved performance when there is a slight breeze, so I moved everything to a new frame. I used nuts and vibration damper/spacers to raise the height of the board so that I don't have to desolder the motor wire sockets and directly solder the wire. The gaps in the frame helped; I didn't have to raise the board much.

Finally used a small square battery grip and rubber band to hold the battery.

I am still flying with 40mm propellors. I recently got 2" props and hope to try them out.

Hi what's your flight duration? I get about 2 minutes on a similar setup.

I haven't tried it with 2" props yet. I got a few Gemfan 2020 recently, but I haven't flown with them yet.
While it is faster and aggressive than just cruising, as a newbie, I don't think my acro flying would be considered that aggressive. I get almost 4 minutes the way I fly with BetaFPV 450mA BT 2.0 batteries.

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..
