Work in progress will update as I go.

The frame originally comes with 30x30 and 20x20 mounting holes on the top plate. With tpu adapters for vista/vtx.
Top and bottom carbon 3mm, camera plates and base plates 2mm.

I drilled my own mounting holes to the bottom plate. Use the top plate as a guide. Start with a small pilot hole and take you’re time or you will crack the carbon.

Camera plate tips need to be filed for a flush fit. Suggest using a flat file.

Xt60 opening may need to be filled to fit adapter.

Aug with dummy(929grams) is 1529grams. 1550 battery you get about 2:30 minutes of flight time, 1800 you get about 3minutes. 2x1400 you get close to 5 minutes.

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.
