My first SniperX Light 5" racer build.

SniperX Light
Foxeer Reaper 45a
Foxeer F722v2
Foxeer Predator nano 1.7
Foxeer Lolipop 4+
T-motor Velox V2 1950 kv
Gemfan 51466 v2
ImmersionRC Hybrid (used v1 here but v2 lands on Monday :)
Droneshop Unbreakable 16mm Strap
SniperX racewires
Speedypizzadrones 1250mah 6s

It might look generic, but carries so much experience.

  • Bas designed this frame taking into account years of experience and familiarity with all the products. He designed all the 3d parts needed for it so I was able to print it in my fav color :)
  • with years of flying I discovered I do not need most expensive motors. These Velox V2 1950 kv are fantastic value. i want to try 2208 again, even tho it makes limited sense, but otherwise I am racing them for over a year and they are great
  • Foxeer stepped up the electronics game, they make great escs and Fcs now, actually previous range of 30x30 electronics was great too. They just cover any application now. Big or small. highly recommended.
  • Of course Predator nano, there is no better analog cam for racing. been like that for years now.
  • Same for lolipop, series 1,3,4 and now 4+ are very good. I might go lolipop nano to save some weight, we shall see.
  • Gemfan 51466v2 is a no brainer. small improvements such as dropping popo, making the but tiny bit shorter and adding 0.1g result in more durable prop that is bit stiffer and corners better. Go to prop for racing.
  • Droneshop makes this crazy durable strap that is long and just 16mm wide so it fits under stacks if needed (I do not need it but it fits nicely below the plates. They also make the same but in 20mm and both are super durable and have rubber thread to keep lipo in place.
  • I used Snippers race wires here but I often use ones from droneshop.nl they make awesome stuff.
  • Immersion released Hybrids some time ago and I could not be happier makes builds so clean and easy, no need to use tapes, 3d mounts or anything. Works great too.
  • 3d parts are no accident as well, loop style turtle fin does not pressure on top plate so unlike the all so poppular front fins it wont crack your top plate.
  • SniperXL has designs for arm protectors I did use since its indoor season now, I also used front brace

Running BF 4.3 karate tune and loving it :)

Also, made a mount for insta360 GO2 I use to record racing https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5212181

Lots of mainly racing footy on my insta: https://www.instagram.com/sircrashalotfpv/

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..
