I had the Asgard32 going spare after giving up on it in a Flowride on account of it being just too big to fit properly & my previous F1 build was feeling a bit outdated with a F3 flight controller & no OSD... so it seemed like a logical upgrade/rebuild path! With the single board stack I dropped it onto 20mm standoffs (it might even have been possible to use 15mm, the FPV camera is actually the bottleneck). One side effect of the shorter standoffs was the requirement to boost the HD cam mount to clear the props, so I printed a riser in the super soft FlexiSMART to sit beneath the rigid.ink flexible PLA seat.

DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
