The idea was to build a high power 4s 5 inch drone for easily carrying GoPro Bones or DJI Action 2. I was aiming for 500g AUW (including action cam and battery) with biggest possible motors on this 12x12mm mounting platform. I think this succeeded ! The control level of this drone is superb, stock BF4.3 tune and it flies so smooth that it helps me get better at unstabilized freestyle a lot.

The motors are the non-unibell 23mm tall motors from FPVcycle in 2330KV.

Flight time with a 4s 1300 mah pack is 4 minutes 30 sec if you really give it the beans in freestyle. Can cruise for 8 minutes otherwise. I have not tried 6s, but I dont know if I would see any real benefit, as even on this build with gemfan F3s I almost never hit 100% throttle.

The 5mm arms make this build super solid, almost no flex in the arms (compared to fouride frame for instance, which is quite bendy). One compromise I feel this build has over a standard beefy 750g 6s 5 inch is durability - for flying over concrete. I doubt the arms will take many hits before delaminating at the ends.

Check out my freestyle edit with this setup!:

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

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..
