This is my first $100+ air frame... I will update after a couple of flights.
6/8/2019: update, where do i start?
Definetly going to step up to 6s, I am impressed with the Iflights Xing motors. Definetly right there with Hyperlite on performance, and smooth power. Just getting over some prop decision challenges as these are my first set of "Low KV" motors. Running HQ 5x4.8x3 on 5s on the 1800kv Xing’s is decent, I tried some Azure Johnny FPV 5x3.8x3. Lets just say I need to be on 6s before I bolt those Props back on(not enough RPM). As for the air frame? WOW! I wish I had started here. As i write this another is in transit to be the replacement frame for another setup i have on a clone frame(sorry, but I have learned my lesson). so keep an Eye out for another Marmotte from me. This frame is tough and having a Lifetime Warranty from Armattan to back it up is good piece of mind. The fit and finish made assembly and component placement a dream! Big thanks to Brain3D for offering such nice prints to personalize and protect your investment.

May I ask why you went for the 5.5" over the 5" frame? Trying to decide between the two for my next build.

but it is at the cost of higher amps.

Got it. How are you liking the motors? Specifically punch/power/efficiency? Thinking of grabbing a set for my 6S Marmotte build.

They never fail to impress me.
I am picking up a few 6s packs to power this bird next. 5s is plenty efficient though. I have Xing motors on a couple quads now, smooth power.

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..
