This is an experimental long range quad. Something cheap that you are not worry about when you are flying far and simply do not trust your gear. The frame is actually three frames mixed together in order to drop some weight. It flies on iNav and the return to home works great! It saves the quad for a few times. The goal is to push the RC receiver to the limit. I was able to fly 3km far with XM+ and EU LBT firmware on my Taranis. This build as you can see it weights 492 grams. The flight time is up to 12 minutes with 4S 1800mAh battery. The biggest downside of the build are vibrations. The props and motors are shitty and you can see jello even in the FPV camera. But hey, good enough for testing.
