Needed a new 65mm for this year. Mixing the points learned from NickBurns and countless others I came up with this as my ideal combination of parts. The VTX mounting is essentially pressfit and coushined by 3m vhb double sided tape on the camera side and the VTX sits on top of the reactor on the FC side. It still allows for some angle adjustment on the camera. New canopy and this is a meteor 65 frame mostly for the battery sizing. Felt 225mah was on par with LW goals more so than 300-380mah. The batteries I found on a google search. They are not always available and link wont resolve if they are out of stock. Good battery! FC is my favorite FC for a whoop to release yet. Just over 3 grams with 405 cpu and blackbox? Expensive but worth it in my opinion. Just double check your elrs firmware target before flashing the wrong one. These dont recover. Costly mistake.

Maiden flight last night. Still need to unlock VTX. If you look at this on cell phone it will stream. Desktop it will download. This was on tattu 220mah 45c batteries as I stupidly tried to convert those maxamps to BT2.0 and it didnt work. Using UAVtechs 1-2s experimental whoop tune in BF4.3.

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..
