Let me share with you my last design under the trade mark of BDR (brothersdrone Race), named IRIS 3" HD.

The aim of the design is a light 3" for 1106/13xx/14xx and dedicated to runcam split mini.
Will use Zeus F4 flight controller to keep the stack height low and use standard 24 or 25mm M3 stand off.

The Zeus FC is rated for 3S, but HGLRC state that it can run 4S if Amps are always under 13A/motor.

20x20 FC holes. The complete quad should be around 90-100g, including 1080p 60i/s HD recording!

The design is an unstretched frame, to give props clearance for the HD.

The frame is available at Armattan production or directly from me (MP)

Here is the FB page dedicated to my designs BDR.

Thanks for choosing my design, and please, share your build.
Do not hesitate if you have some questions.
Stephane, BDR.

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..
