My first Build Ever, completely indestructible.

Fun Parts about the Build:
The ZMR250 has always been my labratory rat. Ive tested all kind of things on this Frame.
In this particular case i had do do a whole lot of modifying:
I had to cut the top plate into two parts, so the fpv cam had enough space, as it turned out the spacer
(which i got from here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1154323)
was not made for my cam, so i had to carve away a whole lot of the inner filling to get the cam to fit.
Next i adjusted the xt60 holder in the back to make space for my VTX, and moved the xt60 to the back of the top plate.
Another really cool thing about this build was that i added a built in voltage alarm beeper, which would let you tell the current voltage of your battery on the bottom of the craft.
Another problem i ecountered was that the spacer was too big to support 6" Props, which is why i had to dremel it down a little.
all in all i was really happy with the result, it flew like a rocket, and crashed like the golden donky from Worms.
would love to rebuild it one day with all the nwe things ive learned since.
But it have to say this is a great Build for when you just got into flying, i crashed it from ~80m and it litteraly bounced of, came to rest and i could take off again.

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..
