I will write more about this later, but enjoy the pictures and video for now.

Here is the HD video: 2.5K 4:3 h.265 60fps

Here is the DVR video. So you can see how the quad handles the extra weight and the voltage sag.

Hi, nice Build Dude!
Can I ask you a question? How is the All in One FC/ESC handlig the 4s with this big motors and 3x3x3 HQ Props. Did you not burn a ESC or Motor? Thank you for your feedback.

Cheers :)

Thanks! I was a bit skeptical about these AIO boards on 4s with 1404 motors but honestly the GEPRC board that I’m using is taking it like a champ. The motors are barely warm after a running a full pack and it is about 90 plus degrees outside. The same with the AIO board, I have NO indication that it is having any issue running it 4s. In fact, it flies smoother with 4s with the same stock PIDs than on 3s. On 3s I get some oscillation that is completely gone when I use a 4s lipo.

thank you for the feedback. Sounds good to me, I was a bit woried about the all in one AIO Board, but I will try it. the only thin is that i run 1404 4850kv motors....we will see :D

I was talking to another guy and he uses the same motor as you and it seems to work well with the HQ 3x2 Bi-Blade props. The AIO boards is handling 4s lipo without any problems. I can only speak for the GEPRC boards because that is the only one I have tried so far.

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..
