The "in-between" (QAV180) updated!

this was one of my proudest builds and was partly a easter gift (motors) and had three f3 flight controller till today. it's now equipped with a MatekSys CTR-F405, before it was an omnibus f4 pro and other lovely components. it was kind of frustrating to get the power distribution board connected to the flight controller with it's built-in current and voltage monitor, so the change was a good decision.

On the omnibus F4:
I've moved the rx input from UART1 to UART3 to connect my runcam camera control to UART1. You might think: wait! Foxeer fpv camera and runcam camera control? Yes, it's working fine, like on runcams! I've not connected the GND wire to OSD, just the OSD wire.

For the Fli14+ rx:
What's left to say: I've modded the receiver antennas with better ones (recommended in the rcgroups)

This is an early fpv flight with an older build (omnibus f3)

Here I did a build series:

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..
