I've flown an analog remix for a while. It is my favorite frame to fly. However, it was a very tight build even I used a FC/VTX AIO board and a 4-in-1 ESC, so I never thought it's digital viable.

It turns out it can fit in a 20x20 stack and a caddx vista with no problem.

Update: 3 months later I upgraded the stack, and put this iflight stack into a cinewhoop. Initially I was worrying about this little 40A mini esc but it held up pretty well, I put about 100 packs on this with a 740g auw, crashed a couple times on pavement, it is still solid.

Upgraded these Xing-E 2306 1700kv to Brotherhobby 2207.5 1750kv, put on a new FC, got rid of more TPU parts. Now at 718g AUW with a hero 7.

Did you have problems with failsafes/bad range with the antenna mounted in the middle of the aircraft? Did you then, move it to the arm? How has the range been with it out on the arm?

No issue with failsafe/range for my type of flying, which is merely ripping in the park. I have other rigs with antennas on the arm, not much difference in LQ. And I'm running only 100mw. But I can't say for sure for anything more than park freestyle range.

Cool thing! I just upgraded by remix with a caddx vista. Care to share your antenna mount print for it? Thanks man!

Hehe, no i meant the 3d printed mount for the vista antenna. As had to remove the "trunk" plate for the vista to fit in so i'm searching for a good solution for the HD antenna.

And I meant that I only had a Brain3D 3D printed tpu SMA mount for the vista antenna, you can buy one of those on their website.

Brain3D mounts for Remix are for axii or SMA, they don't have a specific "HD antenna" version. You would need a ufl to sma pigtail for the SMA version or the antenna will dangle in that SMA connector hole, and I don't have the axii mount so I dunno if the vista antenna would fit in that. Using ziptie and tapes are actually more secured and a lot lighter.

Last time I check there isn't any available file on Thingverse for a "HD" remix antenna mount, and I don't have one on me either.

I also didn't have to remove anything from the vista to fit in the frame, and I had enough room to stuck a thick piece of ummagrip between the vista unit and the carbon plate, I don't know what is your specific situation that requires removing the "trunk" plate.

Got it. Thanks, that helps a lot!

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..
