Armattan Gecko 4 Analog

This is my Gecko 4 Analog build. I decided to try out the T-Motor F2203.5 on this build after putting the long range version on my Bobcat. Still a whisper with these motors till you punch the throttle. I took it out for a short test flight and I'm happy with the power, and noise db. I'm looking forward to taking it to the park so I can open her up and see what she can do. I'll post pictures when I do. I decided to design a new antenna holder for this build as the holder I built for my 3 inch Gecko wasn't quite right. Also designed a Unify Pro32 VTX 20x20 holder. All in all I am very happy with this build and can't wait to taker to the park.

I was able to get to a park and take this out for a spin. It was a bit windy but I didn't have much problems.

Testing out some new Ducts I designed for the Gecko 4.

I just posted my new Gecko 4 Shark Byte build using the FPVCYCLE 2203 3450KV. They are also pretty nice and are similar to the T-Motors.

love it man ! whats your flight time with this setup and your gopro ? im still hesitating between 3 and 4inch !

optikool   Jul 25, 2021 

I'm getting between 5 and 1/2 to 6 minutes flight time. I'm gonna be putting up a video in a day or so.

how much does it weigh?

optikool   Jul 12, 2021 

It weighs 256g with no lipo or camera. I added a couple more pics. It could easily be lighter, but I'm not trying for sub 250g. :-)

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..
