My First Micro build.
I put in a 3s and burned out a motor. waiting for it's replacement.
Just found the new 1103 8000kv can take 3s! ugh, if I burn out another one of these old ones I'm going to get the new set. once you go 3s on these micros, it's hard to go back.

Update 21 July changed to awesome e90 frame and esc 4in1 it's all coming together

Update 4 August broke an arm on the Awesome e90 frame and damaged one motor - ordered iFlight ix2 frame & boldclash motors (seem as a relabel of the Racerstars) - the iX2 frame takes a micro swift! Also changed the XM to an XSR-E (moved XM to a Bat100)

21 October Finally got to finish the repairs it and had a short maiden in high winds around 15-20 mph, which is downright frightening on a tiny little 2 inch. Getting 3 minutes plus out of 450mah 3s with moderate flying. 60 grams without battery

some clips

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.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
