Hi Triki,

really like the build, I am thinking about a build with the same frame.
Is the weight (238g) with or without the battery?

triki   May 30, 2017 

The weight is with the battery, it's 171.56g without battery.

Nice! Will go for a quiet similiar build, but are struggling to stay under 250grams. Which battery are you using?

triki   May 31, 2017 

I'm using this battery, https://hobbyking.com/en_us/multistar-lihv-high-capacity-6s-10000mah-multi-rotor-lipo-pack-with-xt-90.html
I took swapped out the xt60 for xt30 and got the weight of the battery to 67 grams.

Great job 👏🏼
I am really curious about the vtx antenna placement. What will it look like installed? What's the risk of it hitting the propellers?

Looks great! That Snowman antenna barely sneaks above the pod.. But seems much safer that way. That weight is great, just below the registration cut off in the US.

Just removed the shielding from the Snowman Antenna , saved .5g :)

Thought I would update you on the VTX, to help shed weight, I removed the SMA connector from the end of the wip and removed 12.5mm of shielding to make a dipole.

That thing looks AMAZING! Have you considered doing custom builds? You definitely have the skill.

Stop, you're making me blush :)
Thanks for the positive comments, makes me want to do more :)

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..
