Got the DJI system recently, and was unable to upgrade my existing Hyperlite Glide frame. So took the motors and looked around for spare parts, and this this guys was born! VERY tight stack... just one spacer nut between carbon, ESC, and FC to fit the DJI air unit on top.

Here is a video i shot with it:

Does it work fine on 6s with the Matek Micro Bec as it's rated only up to 21V? Thanks

My bad, thanks for the catch! I updated the link to the 30V BEC i used..

Are you crashing a lot? yes, that is a lot of TPU weight. It affects your efficency. I saw your video, it's not slowing you down. If you were to pair down to 10 or 20 grams you would feel the difference. It looks cool, and all the prints you have are pretty well thought out, so I see the allure

Heh only been flying for a year, so i crash maybe once or twice a day on average when i get a chance to fly. A quad goes on the bench every other week or so it seems.. I'm not a racer so not looking for the best performance, but weight does effect flight characteristics quite a bit, so always lookin to shave off more.. My old daily driver (machineworks droner) has titanium screws :P But still decked out in TPU...
You got me thinkin though, i could save 27g by removing the feet/bumpers. May consider doing so when i start crashing less :P

You are probably better off with the tpu for a while. Your self assessment is a wise thing to trust. She does look good in all that green :)

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..
