EDF Jet Quad

My latest EDF jet quad! Based around a CL1 frame, I printed up all the other parts for it. It flies like a heavier quad because it takes a second for the fans to spin up, but it's a fun cruiser! An important factor in tuning is dropping your "I" gain in roll and pitch by like 8 to start. If not, it tends to get into what I call a "death oscillation wobble" where the FC is trying to correct the lag in the fans. Flight time is only around 2 mins on a 4s 1300, but I might build another with 64mm EDFs so I can run 6s.

Wow, awesome project!
Well, it doesn't seem to make much sense in terms of flight performance but definitively in terms of creating something special - great work 👍

it's cool as hell and reminds me of a quad I wanted to build from a drawing I noticed in 2012 from an artist and wanted to build one but with thermoformed canopy

This Quad looks very futuristic and Alienish if you will but the flight time of 2 mins is a deal breaker.

I normally don't comment that often.
But this build really caught my attention to detail.
I really like the 90 degree usb-c adapter,the 3d printed protector around the 90 degree usb-c elbow,and the thumbcam/gps holder.
I think this build is pretty cool.

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..
