But it is made from drone parts.
I built this thing .
It makes me laugh .
So we have some dji type phantom 4 motors , the esc i am using are old pre blheli s little bee 20 amp . They should not be working , but they are and no matter what nasty things i do to it they have not failed yet.
Old flysky radio and recirver for controll . A pdb for pd and 5v for the reciever and a car led indicator globe the programable type for some flashing lights .
3d printed tpu treads , from thingyverse,
Some time spent mixing the sticks . and rip time.
3s 1500mah , endless fun drifting .
I have to mention there is a project using kiss esc and fc to run the beast , I would like to try this , if the fc is used to mix the motor output pid controlled traction controll would be sweet.

So I have made something like this, and now i'm trying to get the FC to work. I looked at an old Powel video on how to get inav for rover to run a tank, but that's only got 2 spinning. Before I spend a million years trying to figure out programming and mixer in inav, how did you set your FC up?

Hi . No fc used just a pdb and 6 chanell reciever,
The left motors are on 1 chanell and the right motors on annother
an fc will be needed to program the esc , set bi directional , turn demag comp up . break on stop on etc.
mixing done in radio.
The Kiss / fettech version uses a kiss fc and has a car config, .

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..
