Snipetto is a TRUE-X 4 inch 170mm frame designed by a Filipino designer Mike Bautista. It can accomodate both 20x20 and 30.5x30.5 platforms.

I have transferred the parts from my previous build (QAVX: 130 https://rotorbuilds.com/build/5723) to this one. I have upgraded the motors from the 1306 Emax to the brother hobby t1s. This frame and electronics combo will allow me to change from 3" to 4" depending on the racetrack. :)

This frame is so light and spacious for my electronics. I can even put the tbs unify pro inside the canopy but instead opted to put it outside.

I can't wait to maiden this thing.

Thanks for sharing, i'm looking for a frame like this to put in the split and will defo contact the designer. Noticed there was some jello in the video, did you manage to get rid of it?

Hi FlyKow,

Yeah the runcam split's jello problem is hard to fix. Alot of split users also encounter this. I actually removed my split in this frame and just used it as a separate action cam (used a 3dprinted mount). I used a lot of hotglue to hold the camera into a fixed position then I also did the sensor pinning method (adding foam / double sided tape / o-ring behind the split camera's board)

This minimized the jello. Hope This helps you.

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..
