This is the Mini QBiT, a high performance, mechanically simple, vertical take-off and landing RC aircraft. Unlike a standard quadcopter, biplane wings give the vehicle additional lift in forward flight, allowing for improved range, endurance and maneuverability. Mini QBiT does not require additional control surfaces like ailerons or elevators to maneuver. Instead, attitude control and transition from hover to forward flight is accomplished with differential rotor thrust. In other words, the only moving parts are the 4 motors, making for an extremely reliable and low cost VTOL aircraft.

Magnetic Mounts for Frame and Wings: Magnetic mounts allow for rapid assembly and disassembly. Easily swap wings out to fit your flying style within seconds. Pop off the nosecone to have full access to electronics and pop it back on to reduce forward flight drag and prevent damage to sensitive electronics.

FPV Capabilities: Two cameras provide first person view for low speed and high speed forward flight. This makes for a unique and exciting flying experience unlike anything else. This video shows it in action:

Durability: Carbon fiber polycarbonate structure allows for shock absorption in crashes. Aerospace grade carbon fiber wings are both light-weight and stiff to prevent wing damage. The nose cone protects sensitive electronics and wings automatically detach in the event of high g-loading to prevent wing and frame damage.

What ever happened to the production of this frame? Are there plans of any kind to release the source files for others to experiment with this frame design non comercially?

I decided to shut down the website because I had to move and need the time to work on new projects. More to come soon, thanks for the interest!

The throttle is held pretty low in winged mode. (Maybe 20-30%)

This is amazing!
How does it switch from one camera to the next?

thanks! it uses a video switcher which switches the camera feed based on a pwm signal.

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..
