I just love this frame concept, so i had to build another mini long range build. This will not be the last, i ordered couple more frames yesterday XD
It flies very well, is silent and enables a very long flight times (over 20mins with Li-Ion 4S 3000mAh), but you can fly some pretty decent freestyle with 6S as well.

This is a light weight frame, designed by Dave_C_fpv. All the parts are in His Thingiverse thing:
David also has some really interestig flight videos of this concept. His YouTube channel:

This baby will be controlled with DJI controller, so build was really simple, just solder the motor wires and power line and GPS.
I used the TBS M8.2 version GPS on this build and it is light years faster in 3D fix, compared to earlier version!
Since this GPS module is a bit bigger, i had to remix the mount. You can find it here:

All printed parts are printed of Sainsmart red tpu.

Build weights about 200g without the Insta 360 GO mount & cam.

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..
