Initially:

I decided to support local miniquad shop with buying their own miniquad frame.

The frame it self is from really nice carbon. All parts fit together very well. It is fairly easy to build although there is not much space. FPV cam is protected and there are also 3D printed parts included for HD cam and as antenna mount.

I used parts (complete electronics) from one of MartianII but it might be better to use 4in1 ESCs or Asgard type of FC.

So far I am quite happy how it flies although I had to use DAL T6040C or HQ 6x4x3 insted of Gemfan 6042. I really like how Gemfans fly but they produce too much vibration on this frame.

I designed and printed out antenna mount for FrSky R9m Slim receiver. I had couple of failsafes with R9M running on 25mW. After I installed newest fw that can run 200mW all is fine. So far.

I definitely like the frame. Give it a shot.

Change Log:

Date: 30.11.2018
I was not really happy how it performed so I used the motors on other build (AmaxInno Freestyle 7"). Then I completely disasabled it and was going to sell it. Now it has KISSv2 with KISS 25A 4in1 esc, Foxeer Predator v2, TBS Unify HV and Emax LS2207 1900kv motors. Flies great. It's not a rocket but I enjoy cruising and easy freestyle with it.

Date: 28.11.2019
I decided to use the KISS electornic in Flosstyle 5" to achieve lower weight. So this frame is now sitting on a bench with only motors mounted.

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..
