Really stoked on this build. It has a lot of punch and the battery life from a 3s 650mah with Bi-Blade 3018 props is over 7 minutes with some cruising mixed in. Around 5 minutes flying it hard. About 30 seconds less with the Tri-Blade props. Total weight with a Tattu 3s 650mah is 131.4g, with no battery the quad sits at 79.8g. Currently flying it with the UAV Tech Toothpick tune and it has responded well to that. Will probably flash Bluejay 48KHz on the ESC's after flying it for a bit on the stock ESC software.

Batteries: Tattu 3s 650mah (51.6g)
Props: Gemfan Bi-Blade 3018 and Tri-Blade HQ 3x1.8x3

I'm impressed, i might adopt this build. i built a 2" speed demon with 1207 rcinpower motors thats really a lipo killer. and was searching for ideas to scrap it for something more ideal. so 3" works well with 1204?

Definitely try this on 48kHz PWM, definitely seems to work best for me in this weight range.

Is the antenna integrated on the board?

yes, the ELRS rx is integrated. there is a U.FL connector for an antenna

in the photos on scale, there is a linear antenna plugged in under the canopy

coool I am using almost same configuration prop/motors with 4S 15/18A without problem! I think you can try 4S with 35A is very safety?!

Yeah, haven't tried 4s yet. The FC and ECS's are rated for up to 6s, so 4s would be safe. It would be crazy fast on 4s.

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..
