Here is my latest build.... a tough one!!!! The low profile of the Rooster let only tiny place for the stack. I'm really disapointed by the VTX TBS Unify pro III..... It's my first TBS VTX and I think it will be the last!
This VTX is expensive, wire are in plastic !!!! Come on TBS.... for the price you can put silicon wire! The UFL connector is crap as always..... and the performance are not so great! Dont really understand why everybody is in love with this VTX! Try an AKK VTX! More powerful, cheaper (and silicon wire!!!) MMCX connector (the antenna cant plug out!!!) and great performance! I will switch as soon as possible my VTX


the arms are sloopy.... i had to block them with a 3D printing square (cf in the part list for the link): next time I will buy Chameleon (monoframe! )

The motors are realy nice: powerful and silky.....and so shinny!!! They look so great and perform!

I tried first, to put the TBS micro receiver on top of the stack.....but the rooster low profile dont allow me! So I decided to put it on the bottom....underneath the stak and the arms..... It was tricky to put it there. Now, it's protected, and I can reach the bind button from the hole underneath the frame! ;-)

hey bro, very nice looking rooster!

How did you go about fitting in the aio stack? Did you need to make any modifications in order to make it work?

From my Rooster experience, as long as your stack is made of 2 chips you dont have to make modifications. Everything is included in the Rooster kit
You will need some extra work and standoffs

  • if you want to fit 3 chips in your stack
  • If you want the Lipo pigtail to go from out from the titanium cage side

I don't use TBS Tx, but I think the overprice comes from the fact the signal does not bleed on other channels
This means you can have more racer in the same time in the air without interference

If like me, you go freestyle on you own, it makes no sense to pay the premium.

Be careful with your gopro, the red case you used doesn't seem to have holes for the strap to go into..

I also built a rooster, I called mine the 'Horny Rooster'. I chose the matek Vtx for it

Hi Dafunk,

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..
