Meet Pruning Peacock!

Cleaned, re-built and conformal coated. Finally it looks good enough to post somewhere. How would you rate the wiering, neatness and overall build?

Little story behind it: It was a stock TBS source one v0.3 frame untill I decided to fly with with 80 degree camera uptilt (because why not :D) This resulted in a high speed colision with a tree, that bent all the standoffs, broke the camera plates, broke the fpv camera (Runcam Eagle 2 mini at the time), battery, and ripped a wire out of 1 motor. Afterwards I decided to slam the frame, by putting the arms on the inside (screws going from top to bottom now) and useing 20mm standoffs. Together: prop line moved up by 17mm.

Looking forward to hearing your comments and suggestions!

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..
