Caught in the Middle of a 4 Way Remix

  • I really like the underslung electronics. Running props-out most of the grass should end up on the battery, not the camera or stack.
  • I was initially planning on running the Eagle 2 with the RC25G, but the FOV is far too wide and the camera plates obstruct the view.
  • I like the separate channel for the battery strap, but it is difficult to thread and it will suck to replace the strap in the field.

I like how you mounted the Tiny LEDs. Are the LEDs always on or do you have a way to control them?

The Tiny LEDs are always on. The 'tailgate' is programable. Mounting thanks to HyphPV's sleeve design: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2776276 and eRock's Race Wire insulator: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2864012.

Thank you. Can you comment on the GoPro session angle with this quad? Do you see props in the view? I've read at the default angle that 20% off the GoPro footage has props in the view, but if you change to a higher angle, it isn't much of a problem. I'm debating starting a build very similar to yours, including the LEDs.

Definitely plenty of prop in frame with the built in mount. E.g.

The Brain3D mount has some props in superview, no props in wide.

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..
