Micro Scythe SirinFPV build

I was given a SirinFPV flight control board to test. This flight board is pretty awesome. Its not only a F3 flight control board with a SPI Gyro, but it also has OSD built in and to top it off there is a 200mw vTX as well! This means you can not only use the OSD to adjust PID's on the fly, but you can also use the OSD to adjust vTX channels too!

Honestly, I dont know how I could have stuffed everything into a 130mm build without it. I would have had to omit the OSD entirely, and who really cares about an OSD on a Micro 130mm build??? Well, ME! lol I really like having an OSD.

Build also consists of the MRM 4in1 20A Zeus ESC which replaces the need for a standard PDB. Neither the FCB or ESC offer 5V, so a 600ma Pololu was installed to provide 5V to the SirinFPV board. The SirinFPV board then powers the camera & receiver making it a really easy build with very minimal wiring.

Frame is a MRM Micro Scythe and I also used the TPU printed FPV camera mount to house the Micro 600TVL wide angle FPV camera they offer. I have decided to play it safe with this build, and will be using a 3S lipo with the DYS 1306-4000kv motors & HQ3030x3 props.

Because of the 4in1 ESC & the all-in-one flight control board, this entire build was way easier than it should have been. I am only concerned if one ESC should fail I am in for a full tear-down & rebuild. Same thing if the OSD or VTX should fail on the Sirin, but lets hope that doesnt happen!!

I took this bad boy to the lake and was able to stretch its legs. Too much fun! I wish it would carry a HD Cam.

Here is some DVR footage from this board. I am using a Pololu for the 5V supply and it seems to be giving some very clean voltage. Zero interference with the video :)

Nice, now let's see this thing rip!

I really like it a lot. I have only flown a couple lipos thru it, and I hope its pretty robust. Time will tell :)

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..
