This build was an attempt to put all the technical features of a 5-inch quad into Toothpick size.
So I chose my components to have BLHeli 32, F7 FC with blackbox logging and twin gyro, digital video, LEDs and an extra loud beeper.
I didn't find an AIO controler with all these features, so I decided to use a mini-size stack.
To get all mounted, I put the ESC underneath the frame - but putting all these components on each other results in a big tower nevertheless...
This tower flies really great and relieable, but it feels bit underpowerd, compared to a 4S 5-inch.
Weight dry: 115 g
AUW with 4S 450 mAh: 167 g

Unfortunately, the frame has proven to be not so stable, or this build is just too heavy for this frame.
It broke during a harmless chrash, which means I have to build a version 2 ;)

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..
