I decided to give my son a quad that he would build for him self. He wanted smal 3" quad and he really loved the Airblade Eclair. He also did not want to fly 4s battery as he is afraid of the power and thus we choose the 1404 4840kv Superman motors as well from Airblade. The stack is HGLRC F4v2 + HGLRC 33A 4in1 and HGLRC nano vtx. I had some spare Foxeer Arrow Micro and R-XSR that went inside as well.
Soldering of such tiny parst proved to be very challengig for him. He was able to solder motor wires and pre-solder all poins on F4 board but putting the wires in was then my duty.

This build looks great! I have the same motors and can't wait to see them rip.

Awesome to see your son building it! 👍 👍 👍 It should be a nice trainer and he may switch to 4S later once he gets more comfortable with it.

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..
