well she is finished and flies great. Final AUW was 254 with 650mah 4S Tattu battery and 245 with 450mah 4S Tattu. RaceKraft 3030 4 blade flies the best, much smoother than the 3 blade DAL bull nose 3045.

My Taranis is set to alarm at 3:30, but I have taken them at least 45 seconds or more without dropping from the sky.
Now that's out side and flying harder than normal. As per the 450 packs 3:30 is pushing it. I had one drop out at 3:15
but I was really pushing it hard.
For indoor events either pack IMO will hold up depending on the course setup and length of the race.

That's great for such low capacity packs! I'm running 3S 850mah on my 3" build and get similar flight times.

Yea I personally like the 650 packs for the runtime and honestly I have been tempted to try the 850 4S but wanted to stay as light as I can. I expected a lot less runtime on the 450's but as mentioned most of the indoor racess are tops 3 minutes and I highly doubt I will be going as fast inside as I do outside :)

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..
