Really excited about this new build. The Airblade Eclair V2 offers full protection for all the components. This can be built with 2" or 2.5" props. This one is running 1105b 6500kv motors on 3s with 2.5" props and of course the Micro Swift. Weight including 450 3s Lipo is 123g, it's a little rocket!!

Thanks for sharing the build. I also want to build a similar one.
One question: is the PDB included with the frame ? I mean, the board where the battery connector goes.
I've checked a lot of builds and none mentions any PDB. Is it included in the revobee FC ?

hey, sorry for the slow reply. No the pdb does not come with the frame. most are using a 4in1 esc which does not require a pdb.

Very nice :-).

Just curious - where did you run your receiver antennas?

Also, did you just use VHB to attach the Rx and VTx on top of the FC?

Thanks, looks really nice. I'm planning a similar build, so really helpful to see others' setups. (OCD note: if you list the backpack in your parts list, it'll be easier for others to find build examples :-) )

I was worried about the VTX03 getting too hot since the backpack seems to cut off airflow. Have you noticed any issues with it?

Also, did you add softmount grommets to your FC (those red things)? Do you have a link to that?

And are you using both a velcro strap and rubber band for your battery there? Was the velcro not enough on its own?

Yeah, sorry man still need to update the parts list. Ill do that in a min here. This build is currently running the iflight f4fc with 18a esc stack. And i added some extra rubber gromets i already had to the fc.

No issues with vtx overheating and i fly in a hot climate everyday with at least 6 packs back to back usually.

Only added the rubber band to help keep balance lead and xt30 in place.

Thanks a lot! Rubber band to tidy up the battery cables is a good tip - I'll keep that in mind.

I'm WAY into this design. :)

Looks good! If you have access to a 3D printer, then I'd suggest something like this... If you don't, then I have a couple extra printed, and could send to you.

Chaos   Jun 29, 2017 

Thanks man. I think the file you posyed is for 30mm boards. I need to f8nd a similar print for 20mm

QuadBaumer   Jun 29, 2017 

Oh.. duh... I knew that.

There's this



And this since you have the runcam micro.

I'd love to see more pictures. I had been looking for a 2" frame that could take the micro swift and pre ordered it the other day.

Chaos   Jun 28, 2017 

Posting more now! :)

Looks great! Can't wait to get mine.

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..
