This is a custom designed frame. I tried to design it in a way that it would be strong, sleek, and still easy to build. I really like the form factor of the QAV X210, so I started with that as a base and stretched the arms. The arms are wide enough to accommodate KISS ESCs.

You can use pretty much any setup you like, as long as the FC is the standard 30.5x30.5 mounting holes. This build uses a KISS FC and ESCs which I had on another frame that I decided to retire.

Next, inspired by Falcon Multirotors, the waist of the copter is thin enough to comfortably pass the lipo strap around it. You don't need to put the straps through slots, so if you break a strap, it's really easy to replace.

The camera plates are curved to allow some room for wires to come from the ESCs to your FC stack, and if you want to forgo the plates altogether, there are mounting holes to slide your stock bracket through and bolt it in. Sliding the bracket through will keep the camera lower and prevent the bracket from turning around. It'll also give it some extra strength.

The top plate has cutouts to pass zipties for securing the VTx, plus a window for changing channels, and there are two extra holes at the very back to pass your RX antennas through if you choose to mount the antennas on the back standoffs like Mr Steele and FinalGlide.

The frame weighs 82 grams bare. The idea was to have a strong frame which would be very easy to open up and assemble again. You just have to undo four screws(like most small stack frames).

The body is just slightly longer to make for an easier, roomier build, and the extra body length is barely noticeable during flight.

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..
