I wanted a new low profile quad to complete my collection. I'm very happy with this setup.

Update: Finally I've replaced Cobra motors by Armattan oomph Velvet motors. I've also changed motors and FC soft mount and gopro support. And a 1000uf capacitor has been added on the PDB. Cossfire micro rx antenna has been modified. It flies very great now. My 1st good flight with this setup:

How your Matek with 1 capacitor?my build https://rotorbuilds.com/build/8736 has used 3 capacitors.

I've only one 1000uf capacitor plugged in parallel of the power connector on the PDB. I'll post a photo later...

I'm looking at making a similar build, perhaps on a slightly cheaper frame - either way how does it fly? Go well?

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..
