Bought an UltraFox a loooooong time ago and never built it. Had some parts, decided to throw a Caddx Vista on it.

Added 2mm to the base of the pod to get enough room inside and opened the camera area up a bit to fit the DJI camera. Modeled a 30x30 to 20x20 adapter to fit the Vista on the top of the stack and keep it isolated from the 4in1.

White balance in the pictures sucks. Sorry.

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..
