What kind of flight time have you gotten with this setup. Very similar to what I'm working on now.

did you finish your build? im also curious about what flight time could be achieved

Ppad   Oct 16, 2019 

Still working on my build. Unfortunately job, family, life gets in the way. Anyhow, my build is a GEPRC Mark 4, 7" version with T-Motor F40 PRO III, 1600kv motors, T-Motor F45A 4&1 ESC and Lumenier LUX F7 flight controller. Been planning for a long time and hope to get some good flight time. We'll see.

Awesome build! Do you have some GoPro footage for me to check out?

unfortunately not yet

Great build! Be very careful with the negative pad on the mamba esc though. It comes off VERY easily.

Ive got this frame coming for a 7 inch build using the same stack. I think im going to design a 3d print for the back of the frame to hold a GPS and route an antenna up above the stack... This build inspired me so when im done designing the rear GPS deck il post the .stl link on here. Awesome looking build though!

thanks mate! really curious how your build ia gonna work out, will definitly check!

A really cool build for doing low range with spektrum, nice buils guy but I'm not sure what this build are great long range, me I may put a crossfire or an R9m( R9m is cheaper ).

Super clean-looking build! Have you given any thought to your VTX antenna placement, such as angling it up so the null isn't pointing back at you?

Zoefzoeffpv   Mar 14, 2019 

hi br overbee, thank you! Antenna stil poorly connected, stil have to 3d print some mount so it's more upwards. gps arrived today but no more clean space haha

Zoefzoeffpv   Mar 18, 2019 

I've just "bend" the Vtx antenna up for now and it works wel

BrOverBee   Mar 19, 2019 

If you can find someone to do it, get an angeled mount made like I did for my Super G Plus build. Just look up my 360 Deadcat build here and you'll see what I mean. It really cleans it up and gives you maximum extension on your vtx antenna.

Pls let me know your thoughts or questions!
I found out the SPM4649T doesn't work on the UART 1 but does on the UART 3 on the Mamba F405

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..
