I decided the phantom could use a diet, I hardly flew it anymore mainly because of it's lack of agility. Especially compared to my 3inchers (see other builds) that have a stupid power to weight ratio that I got used to.

Decided the vista had to undress and not even keep the panty's on. Usually I only decase the top and bottom plate but since weight is a big deal on 2.5 inch I went full undress, shaving off 10gr of the vista alone!!

I was running the polar cam as I did a lot of nightflying around the block and the polar nano wasn't all I was expecting from it but, all in the holy name of weight savings the polar cam had to go and got replaced with the polar nano.

I printed some tpu arm protectors that I found on thingy, weight 0.23gr each.

All in all it lost between 17-20gr! and it is definitely noticeable to say the least.

Beautifull build I really like it, what flight time do you get and how do you like 1204?

well thank you. 4.30-5min at the minimum, always. Infact this is currently my daily during the winter. the 1204s are perfect for this size and weight. tried 1106 shortly but that was no success, too nervous low on throttle.

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..
