Hats off to Armattan Pro. for re-sending this thing twice at no extra cost to me. (post office failed to notify me 2x)

Just a oneoff design, playing around with the concept of a vertical+horizontal arm members.

16mm stack space, which is enough these days for stacks like this, but no, I just transplanted some old parts and had to fit the VTX on top.

Like the re-purposed Emax foam on the arms? ...need to 3d print some.

Anyway, not the prettiest thing but Blackbox logs look amazingly vibe-free and it flies good.

is this a race build?

100g is actually pretty good for a vertical design! Top and bottom + arms are two identical plates rotated by 180° right? really cool idea!

Yep, 180d. Those plates were most of the cost, so unfortunately not an idea I'd do again.

Vertical arm frames are tough to get right! Nice custom work man. Looks like a tough beast.

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. 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..
