A Scott Tomlinson inspired ultralite 5inch using the efficient T-motor 2203.5 1500kV

Apart from the motors I built this from parts I already had. The frame is a cheap Floss copy, I had to mount the arms underneath so that the 20 x 20 stack would fit, and I radiused the edges with a router which saved a couple of grams. AUW 206g

Scott's came in at 20g lighter without gps. I have mamaged to get 31 minutes on a 4s Sony VT6 Lion pack. It's much colder here than down under, so hard to compare flight time with his.

I used the TBS mounting board for the XF Nano and Unify Nano.

It flies really nice on stock PIDs, I tried it with a 4S 650mah and got 8 minutes of fun flying. I'm going to try bi-blades to see if flight time improves.

Improvements I'd like to make are 6S ESC's , Caddx Ratel or Vista Nebula, Gopro naked mount, AIO board and printed canopy.

DVR on a 4S 650 mah, you can see the current draw stays around 3 amps.

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..
