Interesting I had to modify the brain3d black pod/cover to fit just the HW F4 stack on bobbins. Pics for comparison below, didn't need to do this on the Steez. Great build, chose low KV and flying with 5.5 V1S HQ's

Since the stack had the nylon nuts, it stood up a little higher than some with press fit nuts. I simply mounted below the 4in1 HW esc. I did put an o-ring on each standoff screw before putting on the esc. I orientated the plugin for the unify facing the front of the quad, and the pigtail running out the back. Pigtail coax can be seen a few of the pics. Thanks!

*correction, I meant nylon insert/lock nuts. Not the little cheapo nylon we're used to.

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..
