I smashed my 3in Carbon Micro Oblivion due to a RX loss and it landed on concrete T_T. Since I already have three 3in toothpicks, I decided to move this one over to a 4in frame and try out the new HQ T4x2.5 Bi-Blade Props. I only got a couple of packs on it but so far it's a good cruiser. The 1404 3850kv motors are pulling a max of 34 amps on a 650mah 4s according to the current sensor but I never calibrated it.

What do you think about the durability of the frame? I measured the arm width - they're approx. 4.5mm - have you had any bad drops with this guy yet?

The frame is 3mm thick and the arms are 7mm wide. The frame cut along the carbon weave for additional strength/stiffness. I haven't had any bad crashes with this one just yet, but the frame feels really solid.

Ah ok - I was looking at the 65mm frame - that one is 4.5mm wide. Thanks for the response!

But does it "fly like a 5 inch"? :P

That GEPRC board is one of the few aios I've used that has a pretty accurate current meter out of the box. Pretty crazy it can handle those motors. Have you tried it on 3s?

Thats good the know about the current sensor being pretty accurate. On 3s it flys pretty well it's a lot more controlable in small spaces for a newbie like myself.

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..
