This is my next upgrade to my first quad. Because there were so many changes I decided to create a new profile build. This uses many of the same parts from my build at https://rotorbuilds.com/build/26187, but upgrades includes the T-Motor 722 Pro FC to take advantage of the DJI port, ExpressLRS and new Beaver Frame. In order to take advantage of the sbus, from this FC, I reversed the TX and RX ports for URART 5 in Betaflight CLI console. I also created a new wiring harness for the VTX, listed below, to connect to the DJI port. Everything else worked as expected. I created custom TPU part for the quad, and they are listed below. I'm deciding if a bumper is needed. I'll decide after it's maden flight. :-)

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..
