I have been flying this mini quad for a while. This frame is designed by myself. The ultimate goal is to build a modular mult-function Fpv drone that I can easily bring anywhere.
It has a very small form factor that can be put into pocket when folded. And I made the motor connectors with XT30, that i can swap arm module with remove only one screw per arm. Easily switch a mini 4-inch LR to a cinewhoop or 5inch arm for even more fly time.

Nicely done. I was looking for builds using MR30/MT30 or folding arms, and found one using both!

Ever had the arms fold on a crash?

An advantage of folding arms is that they are less likely to break on a crash, because they will end up folding when taking a strong hit. It is a disadvantage at the same time, because it will cause imbalance and prop strikes. This is my only concern

Yes, arms will get fold in crash, so the con is can't use anti turtle after crash and need to check arms each time before take off.

Super cool! I've been searching for something like this for a while! Any chance we can get the files ^_^

I love this idea. Do you have trouble with wires wearing out? Do you have to mark which way the motors spin on each arm? I guess you could just look at the prop but maybe for quick changes after a crash. The plug and play interchangeable parts idea looks like a lot of fun to try myself.

I use MT30 connectors to plug motors. MT30 connector has only one way to plug in to ensure all the wires are correctly connected.

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..
