This is My Impulserc Apex 3"
I wanted to build it with Mr. Steele type color scheme, so I printed the tpu parts of Extrudr powder beige 98A filament.
The motor wire covers are printed of Extrudr black 98A tpu.

This was a really straight forward build, Apex frame houses all parts really nicely.
Almost all TPU parts are My own design. Only cam mount and antenna mount are remixed from Dave_c's minilongrange parts.
All stl's are here:

What do you think, hot or not? :)
I am giving this build away for free on my instagram channel as a 8K followers celebration (as soon i hit 8K), so please follow me there!! @m490fpv

very nice build. how do you like the smoox motors? also how would you compare the Apex 3" Micro compared to the likes of an Acrobrat Duo? I like how the Apex seems very easy to build and work on but it seems like it might be a little heavy given that it's built just like a 5" as far as the frame itself is concerned.

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..
