I've set out to build a long range HD quad that can handle the wind where I fly. I wanted to give Chriss Rosser's frame and tuning a try, so I got the AOS 7 Evo frame cut by CNC Drones, here in Canada. They are in my neighbouring province so this frame arrived very quickly! But first snag - this frame kit does not come with any TPU prints and I don't own a 3D printer.
The motors I chose based on data from one of Chris Rosser's YouTube videos - T-Motor F90 2806.5.
On my micro long range build, I used a Diatone micro stack and really liked it. So, I went with a full sized Diatone stack for this one too.
Going with TrueRC (another Canadian company) for the antennas because they always gave me the best picture with my old analog quads. Since these are LHCP, I also got a pair of TrueRC LHCP antennas for the Goggles 2 to replace the linear antennae. I would like to mount the antennae to the top plate, but I can already see a problem with wider battery fitment. My 6s2p 18650 will not fit with the way the cells are arranged. I may be able to bottom mount it though. For initial flights, I will probably use 2x Auline 6S 18650 packs with a Y cable.
Update: I'm switching the TrueRC Singularity to TrueRC Matchstick, and adding a 2.4ghz Bardpole. I got some TPU on Amazon and gave it to my friend who found a free used 3D printer. We're looking at thingiverse for useful prints.
Update: arm guards and sma antenna mounts printed nicely. Mounting the sma pigtails to the middle standoffs rather than the top plate allows me to fit the 6s2p 18650. I couldn't find a good model for the GPS and Bardpole so I learned Autodesk Fusion and remixed my own. I bought a Bambu Lab P1S and printed that successfully.

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..
