Love this little ripper...
Is surprisingly quiet (at least more pleasent to heare then a full 5 inch), so for me it is the perfect park ripper.
The frame is designed by myself, it comes out at about 45g.
The whole build is about 180 gramms dry, 280 gramms with a 850mah battery and about 269 gramms with a 650mah one.
I could shave off some gramms here and there to make it sub 250, but I just didnˋt do it ;)

Flight times are also pretty good:
850mah:
Cruising: 6 .min
Soft ripping: 5 min
ripping: 4 min

For the 650mah I was getting the same flight times, just 30 seconds less for each of the categorys.
It flies amazing on the toothpick preset by UAV Tech with rpm- filtering on, just tuned it down a little, since I got some weird twitching issues.

Sadly I shorted the fc, but I will upload some flight footage when its repaired.

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..
