By crashing and breaking parts, some other builds kindly donated working parts back to this build. I wanted to make something a little smaller and lighter than my 2Fiddy.
SIngle stack this time to try to shed some weight. Trimmed most wire for more weight savings. I left some motor wire for the unavoidable next build :) I'm ot using the tpu parts and the gps is double sided taped. Zip ties were used sparingly.
I have issue when I mount the gps over the camera with my HDzero builds, but analog doesnt seem to mind this so much. I haven't had any issue getting sat lock in my backyard and my cam signal is good.

This is my first build without external leds :( :(

I weighed it with the LR antenna but rock the lollipop now, i also put on some floppy props for easier transport.

The sixty9 is super convienent for both wiring and setup. I busted this unit so i am using the rx and tx pads from the bottom of the board and stripped away the top plug. I'm only using the top plastic piece to keep the vtx and rx ufl connector's 'secure'.
I'm using smaller batteries for this build to keep the weight down as this is more intended for 'freestyle' speed and flicking than long distance cruising. It's not gonna take a crash very well with those anorexic arms, so i am motivated to not crash :P

The black plastic bracket that you're using to hold the ufl connectors down is actually kinda cool!

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..
