This is my first attempt to build a light long-range using not very expensive and reliable parts.

Flight time

  • With a 4S 650mAh lipo battery, you can expect at least 10 minutes of cruising flight time.
  • With a 4S 850mAh lipo battery, you can expect at least 12 minutes of cruising flight time.
  • With a 4S 3000mAh (200g) lion battery, you can expect at least 25 minutes of cruising flight time (and up to 35 min - see the video below).

Parts

  • Frame explorer ultra light lr4 178mm
  • Brushless motor happymodel 1404 2750kv
  • Mamba mini 20x20 f722 mk3 pro
  • VTX matek mini 800mW
  • Caddx ratel 2
  • GPS bn-180
  • Antenna hglrc 100mm mmcx 90deg
  • Prop gemfan 4019 foldable
  • Buzzer Finder FullSpeedRC Lucky Box Built-in Battery
  • Battery 4S 850 mAh lipo (3000mAh 4S Lion VTC6 recommended)

Notes:

  • For vtx and antenna, I used MMCX connector.
  • You need extra hex screws to fix the propellers.
  • I used Mamba mini F722 mk3 PRO stack, but you can get another reliable and lightweight option like the Flywoo Goku 16x16 or even a Mamba F405 blheli_s 20x20.

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..
