I took apart two of my old 3.5 inch drones in order to build this.
I believe the motors are what makes this fly really nice. The frame is also good of course, but having tried 1404 , 1504 and 1504.5 motors on different 3.5 inch frames, these 16mm motors feel very different. Much less 'floaty', enough power and more of a 'big quad' feel.

This frame usually takes a full vista in the back as a structural element. I put in a naked vista, however using nylon standoffs, it feels solid enough and should be fairly protected. The UFL connector is the most fragile part and I think its sorted out quite well with the antenna mount and a ziptie at the connector/standoff.

dry weight is 165g
AUW with 4s 650 mah pack is 245g

thanks! I think they have great control for 3.5 inch. Much better then the 1404 and even 1504 I have tried on previous builds

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..
