Little, cheap 2" micro ripper. The main intention with this is to use it as a scouting drone. Since it is so small and so light it can fit into almost any gap you can think off and doesn't distract any people. Still super powerful (hovers around 25% throttle). Voltage Sag is huge with the 2S 520mAh GNB LiHv batteries, 96kHz BLHeli_S helped a little. Getting around 4 mins on the 520mAh and 6-8 mins of slower flying on the 1100mAh GNB 2S LiHv. Range of the VTx is great, although I get the occasional RX_LOSS warning with the XM at around 500m away.

TPU print could be improved. Probably going to switch to white TPU with the white props soonish.

DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. 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..
