6S FR7 DJI Vista

This is the third FR7 I've built. I love the frame, it really shifts, but that's probably something to do with the 35° GoPro mount. I've used NyoGel 767a dampening grease on all the mating faces of the frame, as per Chris Rosser's suggestion in order to attenuate frame vibration.

New components to me that I've included on this build are a Fettec spike absorder and a Matek BEC for the Vista.

The build is running Betaflight 4.3 RC3 SupaflyFPV 7" preset. Here is some unstableised footage from my GP10 of a pootle around the fields behind my house for those interested.

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..
