So, this all started because I got a free bluejayrc F4 mini 20x20 FC from blckmn (developer of bluejay). Now that I had a 20x20, I needed a rig for it to go in, that plus my whoop dying for the 4th time it was time to upgrade.

used a few 3d printed spacers, motor dampeners and for final touch - acrylic conformal coating all around. Guts are completely transferable if need be, but I'm liking the frame right now.

49g AUW without battery, but with guard. 2S batt is 23g, 3S batt is 41g, so FULL weight with battery is ~90g on 3S.

Newest incarnation has gotten rid of the guard (flys better), moved to the 1g camera and hot glue method, while retaining the TX03.

Another question, what PID setting did you use? The stock PIDs? Mine flies great and is very similar to your setting, but since I´m kind of newbie, I would not yet make rolls or anything.

sorry for the late response. I do not use the stock pids, my D's are waaay down from stock. the P's are about the same, but a few points lower.

how long do you fly on 450mah? they seem to weight a little more than turnigy´s. Do you feel any performance donwsides on the tattus?

generally around 3 mins for me. I have a set of hyperion g50 batteries too, and the tattu's have more punch to them.

How about the Hoverbot?

I actually ordered a hoverbot, but found out mounting holes are rigid 8.5mm for the racerstar1103... the frame is already light and thin, so sanding the holes out to 9mm for 1102,1104 or 1105 might weaken the frame too much.

@whiffles - Just got a note from the hoverbot folks - looks like the next batch are compatible with 9mm pattern, so might be workable

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..
