I'm always on the look out for new and exciting things. Saw this awesome design is by Peter Ryseck and had to build one ...

Can't say enough about how adding wings changes everything. Quad-Mode Flight times are around 3-6 minutes dependnt on LiPo and props. Bi-Plane mode effectively doubles the flight duration. For those wondering, yes the wings do provide signifigant lift. So much so that a slight breeze can send the MqB climbing rapidly despite the props being 100% horizontal. Please be aware that I'm still waiting on the video switching circuits and thus I've only 1 camera installed. Not really liking the current VTX antenna placement but it works and hasn't been chopped off yet so alls good right!

Thrust to Weight is aprox 7:1 @ 150 grams + LiPo (77g Tattu 650 mAh 95C)

Side Note: I'm working on a version of the MqB that uses 1S 18650 LiPo's. Should be along the same lines as Dave-C's LR-Nano Quad but with wings. If i can make it work, "should" be able to double the flight times. (Edit Just attached a photo showing the work for this)

Fascinating design, how is your camera mounted? It looks like it's resting on the standoffs in the 2 shots where we can see it, with the canopy off. I assume it's not screwed into the canopy, what with the magnetic canopy closure, and all that. Is it glued down? Is there some part of the bracket it's wearing that I can't see?

What I suggested does not involve rotating the canopy, and mounting your boards on the outside of your aircraft causes a host of problems :(

@Jodie Froster - still offering unsolicited advice with zero builds on this site I see..........

Knock it off! Last time i checked, anyone can post here so long as they"re civil. If you have something sour to say, use a PM like an adult.

wow, really interesting. what firmware are you running on? INAV? is there some mode/mix switching betwen vertical/horizontal flight or is just the same?

Betaflight works great here. If you watch some of Peters videos he goes into detail on how its setup.

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..
