Details of my orginal build can be found here: https://rotorbuilds.com/build/23347
When I was preparing the quad for the naked gopro I made a few enhancements because my initial plans for the DC2 was for short range flights. But now I will be replacing mini immortal T for a full size antenna. I also moved the Caddx Vista antenna to the rear of the quad and also replacing it with a longer one. I guess the DC2 is not the most popular frame so there is not a huge selection of 3D printed parts for it. I had to remixed 2 different files to create a mount for a BetaFPV GOPRO Lite v2 case. The image to the right is the orginal mount I used, but it will I need to change it to something else.

Update (March 15 2021)

I never published my initial build details for the DC2 with the Naked GoPro mount because the GoPro was being repaired, but now it is back! Here are the additions to the DC2. First, the Vista camera mount has been changed to something that can better support the HD camera mount above it. The initial design was poorly supported, and I need to use a zip tie because the 2 screws in the front was not enough to keep the camera in place. Another problem I had is that the mount took up too much space on the top plate that I did not have room for a larger lipo. I tired contacting iflight to see if I could get the STL file for the camera mount, but they said not because it was created by a third party. I end up using a camera mount from a Hyperlite Floss 2 and remixing it to fit the DC2. Then I move the naked GoPro forward to better accommodate longer batteries.

Finially, I moved the Immortal T antenna to the front of the quad because I did not like how it was pressed against the rear ducts. After building a few different whoop style quads I learned that the Caddx Vista air unit has both 20x20mm and 25.5x25.5mm (whoop) mounting holes. Instead, of using the 3D printed mount for the Vista VTX, I just screwed it in, right over the FC. I tried using a Beta95X to lift the naked GoPro, but I was getting more jello and it was lounder. That is why I am using this frame instead. I also have some new props I plan to try out soon, so I will update this posting when I do more testing.

Awesome build, man! Is there a way to mount a FC-ESC stack in the middle/front and a Vista at the back, or is the deck too short?

Thanks! Yes, you can mount a 20x20 stack in the front and Caddx Vista in the back. You just need to make sure the 20x20 stack is NOT too big, beacuse the shape of some ESC are wider/longer than others. There are pre drilled holes on the DC2 frame to accept the from and rear layout.

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..
