raptor 210 'short bus'

so this is a shorter taller version of my first raptor 210 frame. the idea is its got a little better aero profile, the base is better for use with a pod that i have yet to design and it will share the pod and or top cover with my raptor 195 X frame ( that i havent had cut yet )

one of the interesting things going on with this is the difference in the way that it is flying vs the same geo airframe i took the parts from..
basically ive discovered that over time with crashe and the high G loading an utlra lite racing frame encounters the airframe starts to degrade.. the old airframe on the same tune and extact set up had got pretty shaky and loose. it had arounf 100 packs on 4s and 10 just renctly on 6s through it along with a number of crashes and the difference in flight performance is astounding..
it turns out the airframes and mostly the arms are deterating over time. this isnt a hunch either as i have black box logs that show it..

now the next intersting thing is this bad boy is 6s ready ( on the ORI32 20x20 stack ) .. and with some stiffer props is a total weapon on high kv 6s.. the big issue isn't amps and hot motors its props not dealing with the rpm and loosing 'grip' making it pretty hard to control..

now also running ghetto 'crossfire' aka the r9m with the homemade 'ghetto' T antenna

a little betaflight 3.5 action

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..
