So here it is: a rebuild of the original pepperF1SH. Pretty much everything in this build is as Simon aka fishpepper suggests. I took the 10000kv motors instead of the 8000kv ones and i decided against ladybird props i favor of LKTR120 props. These are very similiar to the ladybirds but have the 1.5mm mounting hole. Since those original BR1103 motor wires are really crappy to solder and tend to break of easily, i changed them to silicone wires as per fishpepper's guide. Finally, i cut a whoop-style battery holder of some spare foam and glued it to the bottom, which works surprisingly well.

I love the multi-color motor wires! did you replace the full wire, starting at the motor base?

yes i did. these motors originally don't have proper motor wires. racerstar just used the wire from the windings and put shrink tube on it. there are really stiff, hard to solder and break of very often. so i replaced them right at the end of the windings with proper silicone wire.

It is unbelievable well-behaved in the air. Flew 6 lipos today, hit a few solid walls and other obstacles, have not yet had to change a prop.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

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..
