Drew inspiration from Jayembee67's build ( He did a fantastic job with the 3D designs to fit the DJI Air Unit. This is definitely one of my favorite builds and it looks sick! It flys super fast and responsive, probably too fast for my skill level. I might have to bump down the motor limit so that I can control it for now. LOL :)

Excellent stuff, lovely build. And that red and white colour scheme is sharp, goes nicely with the silvery white of the DJI parts! It's a great frame, isn't it?

I just sold my Phantom 3 Pro yesterday that I never used but took some photos of my moms house for the day she decides to sell it. Being able to let go of the controls and the Phantom to stay in 1 spot was rather nice ... while these quads cameras point upwards and do not have motorized gimbals I did wonder if there's any usefulness to hovering in place ... perhaps to hover at specific height and location and then do rolls, etc. That said, does adding GPS to these quads allow you to hover in place and let go of controls?

Yeah, i have a Mavic Pro I am going to sell too. I don't film enough stationary photos/videos. When filming with an FPV quad I think your approach to filming has to more stationary pics/vids.

regarding hover in place with GPS - I think there are people whom have done that and also used a bottom facing camera to help with stationary flight positioning but I have no experience with that. SlamNasty is already a tight build, don't think you'd be able to fit all that gear. Build it and go fly it first, worry about that stuff later.

Absolutely, just waiting on my Air Unit which is saying in delay, and batteries ... can't wait to try it out.

This is absolutely sick! How bad are the props in the camera view?

I'm not sure if it's the color of prop or not but they're honestly not that distracting to me. And I suspect anybody who wanted to take some serious footage would only use the DJI camera for flying and a camera up top for recording which I'd think wouldn't have props in view...

Yeah, doesn't bother me at all.

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..
