got a hold of a betafpv beta65x 2s whoop on massive clearance, looks like they are discontinuing this line. Was going to use it as parts but I'm destroying whoops so fast because of IGOW, I decided to keep it running as is, almost.
This is the latest (Final) version with the C01 Pro camera (similar spec to runcam nano 3) and BT2.0 connectors
love the canopy material too, seems it'll take a lot to break it. The FC, motors and C01 Pro (sadly) are not being manufactured any longer but being the latest version, they have pretty much worked out all the kinks.

this was PNP so i dropped in a crossfire nano and routed the antenna back up and around the inside of the canopy, turns out to be a big no no as the video got all sorts of crazy interference and OSD noise. I've since rerouted the active elements outside of the canopy and it seems to be ok for now.

Been moving my whoops over to GNB27 so i didnt care to also buy BT2.0 batteries so i reterminated the FC with GNB27 connectors.
other than that the rest is stock

the motors have actual bearings and not bushings! heavier though.

coming to 26g dry. not bad for 2s.

playlist of all flights

one flight with an attempt at inverted yaw spins for week12 igow

I noticed lots of jello during the maiden flight. upon closer inspection, i found one prop horribly off centre! Typical betafpv QC! put on a new prop and now its butter smooth.

getting 2:30 with 260mah LiHV batteries and 48khz PWM bidirectional esc firmware

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..
