Stack comes with everything (FC, PDB, ESC, VTX, RX), Runcam Split 2 does both FPV and HD-Recording

Motors are GEPRC SpeedX GR1408 (couldn't find those)

Weight comes in at 188g, currently tested with only 3s battery (to stay below 250g), but 4s should be no problem at all.

Results are in!

did some LOS flights with Quadimoto

with huge, heavy weight 3s 1400mAh: 5min (bought for different quad)
tiny 4s 450mAh - 3min 20sec (needs tuning!)
and 3s 550mAh - 3min 40sec

didn't expect so long times on smaller batteries - so the large ones that I used until today are even worse than expected

here the batteries

now I'm pretty much only using 4s 650mAh 75C packs

they are the best tradeoff when it comes to weight, capacity and amperage - smaller and the motors just suck them dry in the first punch, bigger and they become too heavy.

baseplate now broke in a crash - it was the first thing (after props and battery strap) - so I don't think my hackish approach was that bad.

Now looking for a better fitting replacement frame.

If you take a link of the motor you purchased and paste it in to the motor line it will auto populate and put the name/price in there for you.

No worries! It took me some time to figure out how building on the site works! I still struggle modifying stuff and posting pictures the right way

in the end it was both a lot cheaper and more expensive than this calculation says.

cheaper because I got each part for less - so all parts combined it's about 220€

more expensive because I tried a lot different parts, swapped them out and reasembled with other parts - ordering 3 FC-Boards instead of one tends to increase the price a bit.

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..
