Been wanting to do this build for quite some time now, but was too busy working on other projects. Finally got a few minutes last night to put her together and man... She is nice. At first she didn't really want to cooperate w/ me, but after an hour or so of gently caressing her I managed to put her in her place. To what am I referring to??? The camera mount? No. Actually, the camera mount "issue" was easily solved. I had a 1190 mount lying around that I used and it will do the job until I can source an 1177 mount. The issue wasn't with the frame at all. It was with the damn VTX u.FL cable. Why the hell do they make them so long??? Honestly, it took me at least an hour or two just to figure out the best placement of that single component. Trying various combinations of screw length, standoff length, etc... When it was all said and done I opted to mount it as seen in the pics. To do so I had to use standard nylon 6 mm standoffs on the base plate in lieu of the nice M2 hex nuts provided w/ the frame.

Overall, I think the final product really speaks for itself. Looking forward to flying it later today.

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..
