This is my first build, a lot of thought as gone into it since I took my time to properly decide wich parts should go together. I must say that I am really pleased with the relust. I love it! The only upgrades coming in soon are a U.FL to SMA adapter to mount a TBS Triumph pro LHCP instead of the vista stock antenna and swipe the RXSR to a crossfire nano RX with imortal T.
Even though I'm a noob I found the kwad to be really smooth and locked down just as I wanted it.

I really wanted the Sloop V3 as a base line for that build and build the rest upon it. At the time there was no vista edition for that frame and the guys at Piratframes where really nice to customise it for me with extra holes at the back. I think that their new design is better since the U.FL connector is unconfortabely close to the spacers on mine. But I love it that way (mounted directly on the bottom plate) and I even think that it improves a bit the cooling because the vista is barely stincking out the sides.

Enought talking lets get in détails on what I used for that build. Hope You can take out of it some ideas or inspiration.

Thanks man! The Osd layout is awesome I even added GPS and RTH. Honestly the integration with DJI is on point now thanks to Alexander Fedorov, very nice job there.

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..
