Whishper failsafed and fell out of the sky about 100 ft above the concrete. That will be the last build i use frsky on.
The Phantom frame top and bottom plate both cracked from the impact. They are both salvageable but I think a thicker baseplate would prolong it's life :)
I got the phantom HD bottom plate. Although people say it wouldn't fit, I thought I'd give it a go.
It does not fit :(
the top plate is around 5 mm shorter in length. I could not find any US source for the top plate so I decided to make it work. Easily enough if you use the slit in front of the bottom back hole in the base plate, it lines up (just barely).
So this build is using the Phantom HD bottom plate, and the basic hardware, and side and top plates.

I got a tiny 16x16 aio for weight and space saving. It's great but the soldering pads are tiny.

I tried to be clean in construction... it turns out my clean is still dirty :P

2s is tame
3s is pow
4s is ooomg good :)
build#87 :P

i got a little cocky after ripping around on 4s and tried a gap on 3s... quickest turnaround of a drone for me yet... 20 min of flying to annihilation.


I had to scrap my bin for some parts to get back up in the air. One of the arms and the top plate were cracked. I ordered the HD bottom plate for the thickness. I couldn't find a top plate anywhere except from geprc so i cut the arms off the old bottom plate and used it as the top. The bottom plate is now 3mm and the top is 2.5. The camera replacement is lighter, but has crappy dim light quality. I left the arms on the vtx in case i need to transplant to a whoop in the future. I added some bumpers in the hopes they absorb some of the stupidity im will surely take part in. Surprisingly i onyl gained a gram.
The front two bells were dented beyond repair so im using a geprc and a flywoo in the front and the og rcinpower in the back. They are all around 5000kv.

Nice build, ugly crash. The 'annihilation' had me laughing, pretty recognizable. comes with the hobby. luckily I didn't kept my build count the last 6yrs, would be too confronting loll.

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..
