It flies cool, in my opinion, a large throttle reserve
Callouts:

  • ESC+FC+VTX: DIATONE MAMBA STACK F405 MINI MK2 /30A 3-4S/400MW VTX
  • iFlight XING2 1404 3800kv

Update:

  • The cam has changed from a Toothless 2 Micro to a Toothless 2 Nano (see photo at the end).
  • And I prefer to use HQProp T3X3X3 (more durable) instead of Emax AVAN. Although if you want more calm flights, then the Gemfan 3016 Hurricane is very good.

Nice! One question: How did you fit the Avan 3 inch props onto the Xing2 motors? I found that the center pitch was hitting the top circumference of the bell. I wanted to use this props as others have suggested it goes well with this motor in simliar weight builds.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, they touch the bell and even get a little crumple when screwing, but this does not cause problems.
But in the end, I prefer HQProp T3X3X3 Poly Carbonate more.
They behave almost the same, maybe a little heavier, but noticeably stronger than AVAN

Nice build...
Why did you use washers for the motor screws? Try

SeeSharp   Jul 15, 2021 

It was temporary, but now I have no reason to fix it differently because of laziness )))

Enjoy it then. If you ever remove them I would be interested to know if it flies noticeably better. In theory masses far from the center affect responsiveness but I wonder how true that is

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..
