here is my latest build....a bit tricky: I want to show the engine's a really beautiful 4in1 ESC.... and buried in the bottom of the stack is jut a crime!! so i decided to put it on top! follow by the VTX....and the FC.

The FC is the Joshua Bardwell's one...and it's very nice and easy to solder.

If you enjoy, you can follow me on my FB page:

Video of the build and maiden flight will come soon.....

I'm a big fan of the 4-1 DALRC ESC. Great job in showing it off

What would need to change if I wanted to fly this 4s? Sorry for the novice question but I really beleive this will be my first build. I think it will suit my needs. But I have a large number of 4s batteries already and would like to stay flying them for now. Really nice clean build. Cant wait to see it fly.

Hi Raptor, no need to change!!! when you can fly can fly 4S, 3S, etc..... This setup accept all the batteries up to 5S. But you can use less powerful batteries like 4S without trouble! I will post the build video (in english...) this could help you if it's your first build because it's not the easiest one! There are a lot of features on the Jb you have to know what you're doing! ;-)

Let me know when you post a video of it flying on your YouTube channel too and thank you so much for your reply.

That's a pretty way to build it with that ESC, but that quad itself is right-side up!

Pimpmykwad   May 31, 2018

How'd you wire up the Bardwell F4 and the Engine? I'm looking to do the same thing but feel like I'm gonna spark something.

I will post the build video soon and the wire diagram ;-)

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..
