Had to build a winter indoor/garden flyer and this is what I ended up with!

Before building I was very sceptical about the performance especially with such tiny props, I had two brushed nano's a long while back and they were ok but but very sloppy flyers no matter how I tuned and always had terrible flight times as well as swinging larger props, But was completely blown away by how this guy handled and the power it delivered!

No prop guards but it is so locked in compared to any brushed I've flown they're barely needed indoors and with turtle mode you can almost always flip over indoors and often even in grass too.

Old batteries in video haven't received any yet

worlds smallest drone to carry a gopro? just shows how powerfully this tiny guy is!

What about a reciever? Is it already built in?

I'm using the flysky fs82 receiver, it weighs 1.5g, im not sure of the exact dimension but it fits between the stand offs in the middle the fc and camera

This looks like fun! Is there a frame you'd suggest from banggood? What kind of antenna is that on the VTX?

volitant   Oct 11, 2017 

It really is a load of fun, great punch for its size! its just a whip dipole antenna I replaced with as its far more durable and lighter, I think you could use the bottom plate and possibly the prop guards if you want from this kit https://www.banggood.com/WQ65-Standard-Version-65mm-Mini-Carbon-Fiber-Frame-Kit-for-FPV-Racer-p-1138085.html?rmmds=myorder and maybe this camera mounthttps://www.banggood.com/RJX-16x16mm-Micro-FPV-Camera-Holder-Protective-Cover-for-F3-Mini-STM32F3-TinyFish-Racewhoop-p-1208574.html?rmmds=myorder

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..
