I had planed to do a full Punisher wrap, but it turned out all this frog needed was a little lipstick.
Note to self.... Next time you mount the receiver under the ESC's ( Doh! moment) bind it first before finishing the build.

How much did it weigh with everything on it?

UnderDawg   Feb 20, 2018 

She weighs in at 325g dry. Did you ever find out what your problem was with yours?

yes I did, I was right with the motor problem

How's this frame holding up for you? I broke a "Race" arm, so I'm going to try the lite now. Maybe I'll order a couple spare arms as well.

UnderDawg   Jul 17, 2017 

Whiffles, sorry to hear about the arm. Where did it break? So far the lite frame has held up well, but she doesn't see as much air time compared to some of my other copters either.

It broke in the middle of an arm. It didn't completely break off, but the carbon became de-laminated and flexes considerably. It did take a few really hard hits before this, so maybe it was just a perfect storm crash.

Did you anodize the aluminum yourself? Looks great!

Thanks! I used metal-cast spray-paint with five coats of clear satin for the finish.
I added the link for the paint to the list.

Pretty colors!
I have the same "lite" frame and I see you are missing the same screws for the top plate. Is it supposed to be like that?

UnderDawg   Jun 02, 2017 

Thanks! I ended up using those two screws on the back brace . I just need to take the time to dig around for a couple 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..
