This is my "Mobula 6.5" build. This is a Mobula 7 frame with Mobula 6/ Happymodel Crazybee F4 Lite FC and Runcam Nano 3 camera. I also soldered in a mini Flysky Receiver and tucked it under the canopy.

This is running Betaflight 4.2 and I updated the ESCs with latest licensed JESC firmware w/ 48 khz pwm and enabled RPM filtering in Betaflight. Made a big difference by increasing smoothness and added almost a minute of flight time. I consistently get about 3.5 minutes flight time flying pretty hard indoors! Highly recommend the updated firmware. This whoop is super fun to fly indoors and I also fly it outside when calm.

This started out as a repair for my old Blade Inductrix Brushless whoop that burned out an ESC. It turned into a full build by the time I was done as one of the Inducrtrix motors was also toast and then one thing led to another.

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
