This build is very similar to my previouse builds with the biggest difference are the 3D printed Multi Color TPU parts. The build is very straight forward with the same PID Tunes are my last 2 Squirts.

PID Tunes

Alt Tag
These are my goto PID that Robert Moss shared. If you plan to use these PID tunes, please make sure you are using Betaflight version 4.1.5.

Also make sure you use these Filter setting too

Alt Tag
These are great rates setting to start with but if you plan to do slower flying you might consider lowering it little. Maybe change the Super Rate from .75 to .70

Test Flight:

3D Printing the TPU Parts:

I used Cura v 4.9.1 to slice the STL files and for the filament change (Extensions > Post Processing > Modify G-Code > Filament Change).
Since I only have a single printhead 3D printer, I have a manually switch filaments every time I change colors. So, it took a while to print some of these parts. For example, the GoPro mount normally takes me about 10 hours (25mm/s) to print a single color. But this time, it took about 17 hours to print because I do not know the exact time each layer change happens, so I must keep checking on it. That is why I takes so much longer to print and in most cases the printer would be sitting there waiting for the filament change. For this GoPro mount, I had to change the filament 20 times!

When printing with a .3 layer height, here are the specific layers where I changed the filament colors. It is very important that you set the layer height to .3 or else the numbers I list below will not work for you. Believe it or not, it took me a few hours to figure all layers I wanted the filament changes.

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..
