I come back and look at this build from time to time (so savage!!!)
THIS time I found a bunch of sex work advertised in the comments by some disturbingly unscrupulous individual or (more likely: ad bot).
Your build is still inspirational, and I would love to pick your brain about batteries and how well they performed with your setup here!
What batteries did you run on this bird? What did it take to get it to fly well, without too much sag?

yeah shame about the adverts !!!
so far just been running pairs of 2200mah 4s packs with a lowest rating of 90 as at the mo ,big packs seem to be out of stock in my usual uk stockist .. seems to fly full beans til the very end of the pack where its time to land so dont really notice much sag :)

Stop advertising ACTUAL sex workers, this is a site for electronic hobbies, not a connection point for humans trying to have sex with each other!

hi dude,
something disturbs me on your build. isn´t the PDB only able to handle 160amp in total ? or is it per motor ? i'm confused.

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..
