Had a set of 7" Reverb arms and broke my 5" reverb so decided to have a little fun with a light LR build. build weight w/o battery/gopro is sitting around 400g. 10min on a 1300 5s and similar with a 1050 6s. Designed a gps mount for the BN-880 to fit the back but currently planning on designing a new one that will be placed inbetween arms level with body since I found that it fits perfectly with frame edge in diamond orientation, will update when I get a chance to finish that part. Just started playing with INav but have it flying well with Position hold and a few other modes waiting to test when Im not flying with a giant lake in my backyard and have RTH fail. If your wondering I have crashed 4 different quads into the lake all recovered and still work except for one reverb with a session 5 sitting on the bottom within 30 yards of boathouse....had some brand new t-motor f40s that claim to be waterproof, I I will be looking for when the water warms up and submitting a claim to t-motor if I find the quad and the motors dont work :P

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..
