Flew the OG 5 incher, just realized I like the alien for what it is. Not a new build but I though I'd go through and do kind of a walk through not everyone flies kiss. Moving over from betaflight is hard for some with only manuals, thought I'd start a build guide for those that are more visual learners. Hope my updating helps give someone some info or ease of building. Will do videos on kiss software when possible.

1) still an awesome quad but my plans are this:
conformal coat the esc's it's summer in Vancouver but the rain can come anyday and ruin the next few days.
Set up kiss telemetry (the pnp50 stays kiss esc's do esc telemetry only the pnp50 does everything (vtx camera everything included. I actually record this, I'm a bit of a stats guy (use this to see how motors and gear drain the quad).
Conformal coat the pnp50.
Update the top plate with the slot on the top
Mount the fc with vibration dampening stand offs
Redo the wiring on the Kiss fc to run the lua script (updating here, make sure to save every page every check mark every tab).

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..
