Kebab FPV continues to innovate and provide us with cool new products. I was sucked in and made a quad!
Opinions and why I chose the parts:

Fouride Frame: It was just a really nice frame (I got the 5" one) and looked unique but also well made. Its a true ____ to put together and required a bit of sanding on the central standoff hole, but all in all a sensationally well designed frame. Carbon is all chamfered too contrary to the pictures showing it to be straight.

2203 3450kv motors: Again, they were just cool and innovative so I picked up 5. They are incredibly smooth, super nice finish and easy to mount. They also have 8+ inches of wire so really handy design. They also come with cap head screws. Downside is that they get strangely warm (30-35 degrees) when spinning without props at 60% throttle. Not sure why but they sound good and I assume its just because they are small.

Goku GN745 and HM600: I got these for £50 on banggood (yeah I know...) and the f745 chip, 40a of power and a 600mw vtx seemed a good deal. The board is easy to solder to and comes with black wiring and xt60 (which is cool) and yeah: its good. Ran a 1000uf cap because I am running 3450kv 4s.

Foxeer Razer: Solid cam, looks good, used it before and it's really nice. They are easy to get hold of and I don't see why you would want too many other cams over this; really spectacular for the price.

HGLRC M80: I tested these out a while back and I get 25 - 40 sats consistently; its a beast. Best GPS I can get for under £30 (well under £10) and it performs like some really high end ones. Quick lock and good, consistent, connection - even when flipping around.

All in all I think I would recommend all parts in the build (even the heat shrink and stuff haha) and am happy with how it turned out!

Notes: After a few flights, I would recommend using this for freestyle, and using a 4s 1000-1100mah 90-130c (GNB 4s 1100 130c is best) with this, and also actually something like 51433 gemfan props seeing as the 5125 are really a bit too floaty/slow to be completely enjoyable! Just my personal preference however.

How is durability on 5in compared to 4 inch?

Mr_Stripes   Feb 08, 2022

What kind of modifications you did to the LiPo? or is it a custom Li-Ion? Looks good.

Oh haha - it's just a li-ion 18650 4s with my kinda logo on it; I can tell you though: do not buy 18650s from ebay. I got fakes but from aliexpress and reputable stores I have always had good ones :D

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..
