The project started with the Rekon 3, but I don't like the 3d printed frame and wanted to integrate GPS.
GPS on the Rekon3 was not easy to implement, as only 1 UART is possible (2nd UART is used for WiFi) and I couldn't get it to work via soft serial.

I saw the FlyFox Nano 3 Frame and assembled all parts from Rekon 3 to FlyFox Nano 3, in addition, I used the PlayF4 FC to be able to connect GPS.
from then on it flew great (about 10-15min)

i tested a runcam split 4 and a GPS mate but it was to havy and flew only 7 min to 2,8v.
si i decide to downgrade to stock and ad a simple Buzzer.

time of built: 9 hours
time of programming: 2 hours

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..
