I wanted to go super small on 2s...
these motors are noticeably quiter (less buzzy) compared to higher kv 0802's I have used.
40g :)
I tilted the canopy a little so there is a place for the air to escape out the back. This canopy is a bit restrictive to airflow.

the only issue is the props are in view.

3.5 - 4 min on used tattu 450 2s I am very impressed
buzzer added :)

Im not clear why, but Im getting a roll of death randomly now. One of the motors seems to be having an issue. Im gonna have to tear it apart and rebuild again.

Ohh I LOVE the build! I'm on a nano build kick at the moment. like 31mm or 40mm props. I wish GnarlyFPV would restock the Guppy V2 frame! I'm getting impatient!

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..
