I really love your frames, i think i'm gonna move my 3" setup to this if you don't release any new frame in the meantime, sorry if i copy you but it's that there is no frame i like more, how is holding up this 4"?

How about 1300mah lipos for this frame, too big/heavy (150/160g)?

volitant   Jul 03, 2017 

It will carry it no problem at all, but the performance will be reduced quite a bit compared to 850mah and as the whole quad is heavier it will put more strain on components and frame in a crash, if you have 1300mah already you may aswell try it anyway

It will carry that size no problem at all but of course the performance will diminish quite a bit as the weight goes up compared to an 850mah, the extra weight also puts more strain on components and frame in a crash, if you have 1300mah already though, you may aswell try it

Impressive weight for a 4"! Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

I just finished my Japalura 4 and it comes in at around 182g without the pack. I'll probably mount my Mobius mini on it, so that should be a fun combo.

yeah that should work great, I tried mine with a heavy old sj4000 cam which weighs like 80 odd grams and it handled it really well! I was looking at the mobius the other day, looks great for its size/weight

It's pretty decent for the weight. The mic leaves a lot to be desired and the lens A is too narrow, so lens B is the way to go.

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..
