This is a 3S/4S capable 3" build. This is for sale also. if you want it it will be on RCgroups classifieds shortly after you see this.

AUW 194 with these batteries

I custom designed a 30 deg camera mount, installed around the front two standoffs. Only throwing this on here to get a PL and put it for sale. I've got tons of 3030 dual blade (unsure brand, not durable props, very light). best performance with those. DYS 3030 triblades fly great, slight oscillations with current tune. racekraft 3030 quadblades fly awesome and it just takes a little bit to spin them up because of the extra mass. rotorx 3040 triblades have too much slug and are hard to fly, would be awesome on 4s but on 3s it is slightly under powered for this prop.

I have only ever flown this on 3S. Not interested in 4s myself for this build as I've fallen in love with 2.5" 3S drivetrain.

what is the weight of this frame?

I forgot! but I do remember with the lipo it was 194gm in the air. I'd guess the lipos were ~120-130 gram and the drone was probably 60-70gm dry

4s capable, while the motors claim to be 1s-2s only? brave!

yea, I ran it on 3S exclusively. it was fast enough I never tried 4S :D

I have that same frame but haven't built it out yet. It's a neat little frame. Where did you find that camera mount?

I designed it myself in CAD and 3D printed it.

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..
