smart audio is not working, its very possible i fried something, this transmitter has been soldered sooo many times :)
very fast 2s 1103 /11000 motors. super stable on stock bf tune
59g dry /87g with 2s 450
about 3 min of moderate to heavy agressive flying.
I used another armattan cf whoop adapter, and then a sanded down piece of plastic over that to stick my vtx to, as well as to diffuse the led light.
There is an led on the top, and one on the bottom under the xm+.

I am having issues with my smart audio, i need to swap uarts.
after two days of fun, i have cracked two of the ducts. Im gonna see if some superglue will remedy the situation. This frame is fairly rigid plastic (unlike the cockroach frame). i can see this happening often :(
after 4 days, all four ducts are cracked. Superglue does not like this plastic either... looking for a different frame. I would not recommend this frame.
v2 coming soon

I fly above my house mostly. I have flown it indoors for a short period just being very careful with the throttle :) You could scale the throttle for indoor use, but it's still heavy enough to knock over and break stuff (or put a hole in the wall).

Real talk? Hole in the wall?

its fast and has some weight and hard parts, i wouldn't be surprised if a full speed crash resulted in wall repair of some sort :)

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..
