FPVcycle 5inch Glide. gotta love what kabab is doing for our hobby.. so i wanted to try his frame!! what a beaut! construction is top notch and simple.... forgive the carbon dusted hands -- i chamfered this by hand. lol..

the only thing that was interesting about this build, was the need for much more d-term filtering than ive had to do on any other build..

betaflight 4.2

becuase this is a fusion gyro, it doesnt require much gyro filtering coupled with RPM filtering..
so its running ONLY LPF2 at 500, dyn lpf and lpf1 are off.
gyro_rpm_notch_q = 1000. dynamic notch is 0/250/100/350 ...
with the D-term Filter slider at 1.4...

master 1.0,
pd balance 1.7,
pd gain 0.8,
stick feel 1.7
feed forward transition 1.0,
iterm relax RP setpoint 10,
dmin gain 55,
dmin advance 100,
antigravity 5.

BF 4.2 specific settings =
set ff_spike_limit = 55
set ff_smooth_factor = 40
set ff_boost = 0
set iterm_windup = 70
set pidsum_limit = 1000
set pidsum_limit_yaw = 1000
set vbat_sag_compensation = 100
set gyro_rpm_notch_q = 600
set thrust_linear = 25
set dshot_idle_value = 650
set idle_min_rpm = 25
set rc_smoothing_derivative_type = PT1
set rc_smoothing_auto_smoothness = 20
set dyn_lpf_dterm_curve_expo = 10

here is DVR of a flight with these settings (please ignore the poor vtx reception, its broken, new vtx is on the way)

Nice man, I was about to build out this frame but I decided on the super g.

What is your dry weight?

Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage..

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..
