So I built the Pico Pavo and then started wondering about other 03 only lightweight builds. 2in seemed like it would be a worth while exploration. I started tinkering with tks78 frames I had then happened on oddityrc and have been playing with slightly modifying their 120 frame kit to accomodate my concept.

Nice build! I am looking for something like that to replace the pavo pico 2s frame, which I keep braking all the time. Did you design the camera mount? Is there any jello in the footage of the 03? BR, Lorenz

how well do those Fpvcycle motors hold up ? thinking about picking some up soon and building a whoop .

so far fantastic. Seeing as these are mostly used as toothpick motors that see much more abuse than this application I would say they are actually a bit overkill for this application in terms of durability. That durability is largely thanks to the 2mm motor shaft, which also means you will need to enlarge props from 1.5mm motor shaft to the 2mm setup. I use an fpvcycle jig to accomplish this.

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..
