Strawberry Basher

I recently took advantage of the big BG sale and bought enough parts to build a couple of quads. This is my new basher...
I built this one using the F4 Flame and opted not to use a 4-in-1... I think she turned out clean anyway and I'm looking forward to crashing it up this weekend.

This thing is gorgeous, man! The level of detail you put into the scheme is impressive. I had to zoom in to notice the matching red FC stack standoffs and black/red braided wire covers INSIDE of the quad.

Thanks! She is next for a rebuild ( gotta have more power ) and I'll try ad keep her just as clean.

Wow! Dude that thing looks amazing! Where did you get that skin? Also did you use shorter standoffs?

UnderDawg   Sep 14, 2017 

Thanks! I bought the Skinz on Amazon. I listed the link above in misc.... Also I did drop the top 5mm .

Looks amazing! I'd have trouble forcing myself to beat this around.
Any reason for original Racerstar 2205 rather than the newer 2205S? Just curious.

UnderDawg   Sep 13, 2017 

I have that problem with all my quads. As for the motors, I got a better than listed price for just the 2205's

Mish   Sep 13, 2017 

Ah, fair enough. Thanks.

Looking good! Red is not a common quad color from what I've seen but you've sure made it look good.
May I know how have you mounted that XT60 on the back?

UnderDawg   Sep 13, 2017 

Thanks!! That's the Plastic Spider TPU mount. I used a m3 loc- nut on the underside of the plate to hold it in place. I bought it here. other than that it's just 10mm mesh zip- tied to the bottom of the frame. BTW the black and red matches my truck and my Fat Sharks.

Are you going to do a softmount pad to keep the battery off those screw cap things?

UnderDawg   Sep 13, 2017 

Most definitely. I may cut down some landing pads for that job.

Whiffles   Sep 12, 2017  

Looking good! I've always avoided those red motors because I just don't know how to match them. Seems you had no problem complimenting them.

UnderDawg   Sep 12, 2017 

Thanks!! I bought the vinyl back when I built the Frog Lite, but it just didn't work out on that build.

It's nice to have a beater quad to get risky with.

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..
