Hyperlite FreeRange Freestyle Build - 6S

I loved the idea of an aluminium bottom plate so decided to do a build with this frame. The frame is beautifully designed and is lighter than most of my other builds.

Points to note

  1. While the Aikon AK32 Pro 50A ESC is a 20x20 ESC, it still takes up the same space as a 30x30 one. Mounting it on this frame felt like a great idea until I realized that the Capacitor (1000uF 35V) wouldn't fit in the frame with the vista in the way. Luckily, mounting the ESC 180 degrees in reverse allowed me to place the capacitor flush behind the nebula camera.
  2. I used the iFlight motor wire shields to protect the wires from prop strikes.
  3. The Crossfire RX, along with it's protective transparent heat shrink wrap mounted on top of the stack works well, but care must be taken to ensure that the RX does not press down on the BOOT button of the FC, for obvious reasons (took me a while to figure out why the FC kept rebooting in DFU mode).
  4. The standoff in the middle proved to be a tricky thing with the capacitor placement. Luckily, where there's a will, there's a way.

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..
