NanoLongRange from DaveC FPV Remix

I asked a company specialized in 3Ds prototyping for the frame.
The built they came with is pretty nice and stiff, also the 18650 is well maintained in the frame.

Here is a small footage pushing the throttle hard, it flew 14/15 minutes cruising.

If you have any question/suggestion i'd be happy to answer them or take note of.

Hi, I'm building a very similar quad and I'm wondering how you connect this GPS module to the 5in1 Happymodel FC. Thanks in advance

benyi   Jul 15, 2021 

I added the pinout picture of the crazyf4 elrs in the build pictures,

You need to connect your gps to tx2 and rx2.
So you won't have smartaudio.

I had to update the board firmware with betaflight 4.2 to make my gps work.

Nice job!
I'm curious how this frame compares to the "original" Nano Longrange, both in weight and in endurance 😉

benyi   May 20, 2021 

Thank you !A
As you can see in picture '2' the weight is 13,85g including the built-in 18650 tray.
I'm looking forward to receiving the motors and flight controller, once I have them I will post more about the build !!

Thanks for your advice =) ! The credit goes to my dad for the design.

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..
