T3h HyperLIT Floss. This is my first 4" build and it's a blast. I've been eyeing the frame and build for a while and was inspired to build one after being beaten by one at a MultiGP Race. I named it "T3h HyperLIT" simply because the Taranis is one character short to accept "T3h Hyperlite" as a model name, and I thought it sounded good.

The build is full featured with a current senor, OSD, Smartport Telemetry, and Unify Smartaudio. The omnibus F4 Pro doesn't have solder points for the secondary UARTs and they instead break-out to a micro connector on the FC. Due to this I soldered my smartport and smartaudio to the back of that connector port. All of the electronics have also been silicone conformal coated for waterproofing.

It flies great on 4s with the KK 4045 Bi-Blades, I was able to qualify in the #1 spot for a finals(crashed out in finals) at a recent MultiGP Cincinnati Quad Racers event with this setup(DVR below). Currently the build weighs in at 190g without a battery and 295g with a 850mah 75c Tattu. It seems a bit heavy for this style build, I could certainly shave some weight with wire lengths and maybe a micro swift camera.

What's the dry weight on this little guy without battery?

Great build! Did you try other props like DAL or only the kk4045? Waiting to see the dvr :)

I've only tried the KK prop yet. The DVR is up.

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..
