The evil purple215 (frame for SALE!)

an extremly wrong build, supposed to be a fast agile racer turned to be a cruiser.

as i was building every miniKwad mainly as a 3S capable kwad, i always choose parts which can handle 2-4s lipos. but this build is different, the (older emax MT1806) motors support(ed) up to 6" props but only up to 3s.

UPDATE I: as the emax motors were spinning too slowly and weren't capable of handling more than 3s LiPos, i've ordered some new stuff: DYS 2008 2550kV motors. now the so called "purple215" turns into "red215". will call it "the evil red purple215".

UPDATE II: will change the flight controller to the matek f4 ctr (from my 8" LonRang), to get rid of the pdb and save some weight and gain some space in the stack.

UPDATE III: i had some spare amaxinno motors laying around, and swapped the DYS ones for them.

Hello, how is your Flysky FS-A8S receiver doing? What range do you get on it, what radio do you have with it?

KM|fpv   Aug 13, 2019 

Hey,
I really don't have any issues with the fs-a8s receiver. I also have done the rssi mod on all my fs-a8s and the fs-x6b.
I have the flysky nirvana nv14, with the opentx image provided by flysky on their website.

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..
