I have designed this frame as compact as possible. As FC I used a standard Whoop FC, but everything is turned upside down (the USB points upwards) and the motors have to be reassigned in Betaflight (resource remapping).

The motor mount is for 0802 motors. Screws are M2. A simple rubber band serves as battery holder.

Nice! Tell me what you think. I'm not completely happy with the battery mount yet - maybe it's better to leave out the front and rear screw on the FC and add some anti skid pads there (or pads that stick out higher than the screw heads). I also need a tighter rubber band because the battery is currently very loosely attached...

I will definitely keep you posted. I will most likely mount my FC on short standoffs only on the sides and keep the standard configuration similar to my Housefly build here https://rotorbuilds.com/build/27546 As you said that allows me to use a small amount of anti slip pad on the bottom of the frame, and my batteries never move.

With the anti slip pads it's rock solid!

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..
