I simply purchased an Eachine Tyro109 kit and installed all of the components into the GepRC VX5 frame. Flies great, and was under $200 to put together.

Should make for a really cool build. Looking forward to checking it out.

how does this build fly? And what kind of flight times do you get?

It performs very well. Faster than I had expected on 4s. I haven't tried it on 5s yet. On 1300mah Ovonic packs I get over 4 minutes of flight with a lot of full throttle bursts.

Good to hear those flight times. Any issues with the Eachine VTX? I guess there notorious for going out. Or any issues with any of the Tyro components?

There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
