This is my third RD5 build. I tried to keep the weight down, since I use 2205 R6 motors.
Ended up the final weight to 271g with canopy, heavy props and strap. :D
I guess this build will be really fast!

I designed the canopy with the detachable crash flip fin: It can be found from the same place, where I have the punisher canopy: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3591353
I also remixed the TPU end piece to include the AXII micro mount

Printed the TPU parts (stack nuts, rear cage mount and crash flip fin) from neon yellow TPUA98. Painted the rear arm spacers to match the yellow color highlights....

Tell me what you think?

scanned all frame parts -> converted to svg. this way it is easy to test fit all the parts that I've designed 😊

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..
