Piranha - dragster drone for 6s batteries... Frame - ReadyEdi RE228 Beast-SX V2 (compact, strong and cool looking frame). EFAW 2407R 2800kv motors are great choice. ESCs - T-Motor F30a 2-6s should be enough for this motors. RunCam Eagle2 have wrong mounting places for this frame, had to adapt it. Matek FCHUB-VTX - save some space and weight in this build. Later (when Matek will release new F7 fc) planning to replace F405-OSD with F722-STD.
Overall - 373 grams - very good weight for 6s drone.
Changed FC, installed Mateksys F722, also swapped escs on T-Motor F35a 3-6s BLHeli_32 Dshot1200, installed new led inside drone body.
Next step - tune this monster....

I'm using BF 3.2.4 so far, it's not optimized for 32/32 settings! 32/32 algorithms and filters are in beta versions of BF 3.3

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..
