UltraLite 5”, BrotherHobby 2004 w ET 5 - 155g!

I knew when I heard about the upcoming 2004's from BrotherHobby that there would be a set of 4 in my future!

I haven't been able to get a BetaFPV 35a aio yet so I decided to use their 20a v3 aio. Now this means I need to dial it back a bit to keep from frying the aio. With the Gemfan 5125 Hurricanes in the photos, the throttle needs to be limited to 80%. Another prop option is the HQ T5x2 bi-blade. The throttle limit can be turned up to 85% for the bi-blades.

An ultralight 5" can definitely be made even lighter than the 155.1g of this build. I've already seen some builds @20-25g lighter! Can't wait to get my hands on the BetaFPV 35a aio or even the upcoming CLRacing aio to really unleash these beasty new BrotherHobby motors!

PS - the Megabat canopy was TOO cool not to use! ;p

How are you liking these motors? I build a Power Pick 5" similar to this with 2203 FPV Cycle motors. I got tangled up in a tree and fell maybe 5 feet down onto concrete and somehow bent 2 motors in the process. I don't think I'm going to replace them as they are a little heavy (20g) and didn't seem to hold up to a minor impact. So I'm interested in these or the xnova 1804.

This looks badass! :)

I just flew my 4" Micro Reverb on these motors and it hauls a hero or session no problem. 7 minutes with session and 4s 850!

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..
