Remixed a bunch of TPU parts and built myself an HD version of Scott Thomlinsons BlackOpal UL 6" Endurance flyer. This thing is capabale of being sent long range, used to freestyle or flown as an endurance flyer for extended crusing (30m+ easily) using a 4S Li-ion pack. Build details below and maiden footage coming soon.

Build Notes:

1) The Goku HD745 is the only FC Id recommend for an HD verison of this build

2) This frames camera mounts are designed for 14x14 Nano sized cameras and will only fit a 19x19 Micro cam if you use m2 standoffs on the front and 3D print a TPU camera mount for the standoffs. (Personally would recommend to have it cut with M2 holes for front standoffs instead of M3)

3) This frame weighs only 43G -- Its intended to be as light as possible to maximize efficiency and flight times NOT to be crashed a bunch so beware

4) My build uses a naked Caddx Vista but you can fit a cased one too


1) Added M2/M3 Self clinching nuts ( to the top/bottom plates for the front standoffs. This is better suited for adapting M2 bolts to M3 sized holes and is now totally solid feeling.

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..
