Odonata Vista aka "Zero Tolerance"

Practically a ductless whoop 77mm frame. Got this frame from Armattan. I wondered how this would fly and how much I could push the envelope cramming a Vista in there. Only had 1102 8500kv laying around so I don't expect huge power, or do I? Weighed it in at ~40gr.. Maiden will tell.

The initial setup was already halfway done since I recycled the aio that didn't seem to be the issue when it came down from the sky in my Og mobigital. Turned out a motor "Aeolus" just decided to leave the chat mid flight smgdh. So no more Aeolus for me.

I figured being this tiny it'll need some serioud PID tuning so added a Flywoo BT module which I could not find room for so I slapped it on top.

Man this thing is tiny! Practically same size as the lipo. I did a test hover in my mancave and she flew well, enough. Immediately noticed less noise as it has no ducts to fight.

I'll be trying it out with the new Radiomaster Pocket tx I got in the mail today.
Hoping I find the time tomorrow and if the weather gods are with me to give it a little rip.

Obviously it has it's name from being redicilous small and very, very finicky to build.

Edit: Flies very good, zero jello. Avg 4.5m with 530mah 2s hv lipo. Love that it is very quiet for it's size. Going to try a couple flights with 380mah 2s that I have. And got to find a way to mount the lipo properly. I don't even see where I could elastics the elastics. It is the Odonsta frame from Armattan, link in description. Bought at dronefpvracer as that is closer to where I live.

EDIT 12/22/23 - Found 1S lipo mounts that I remixed for 2S use, no more fiddling with those elastics. Oh, and I sold the Radiomaster Pocket elrs a week after receiving, if felt nice and all but I guess I am grown too much to the t2pro with cnc gimbals.

Hello! I just finished my build in the same vein, did some remodelling of files to get the cam and receiver to fit a little better in the quad, but having some trouble with the tune. did you happen to tune this and if so do you have a tune you would share? I included a pic of build and would be happy to share 3d print files with you!

Hi, thats awesome! can't see your pic tough. Mail me at pjurebusiness@hotmail.com and I will share my tune with you. Qurious to your stl as well. greets

Can you share the battery mount stl's?

nvm, found them on Thingiverse. Thanks for posting

How hard was this to build? I consider a remix of this for my very first drone, since it fullfils all the wishes I have for a drone.
Edit: Would also love to see some flight footage

any footage of a punchout or a link to your youtube of you flying this? very interested in this build

I must have stored on my goggles. when I find time I will put something online.

Finally!! An HD KingKong 90GT!! This really reminds me of the micros of old! Good work man. This has inspired me to pull out my box of abandoned quads for the winter! Thanks for the inspiration!! 😍😍

4s? 3s............Im just thinking about the Kv? 90GT was around 40g, 8500Kv 1103, and that was awesome on just 2S!!

airrage   Aug 31, 2023 

2S HV 4.35v is where it's at. more than enough for this thing to rip. 10k kv preferred but we'll see how this performs

Black Labs   Aug 31, 2023 

Thank you for the clarification. I just saw 4S on the build list and thought, huh?!?! Again, nice work man! 🥰

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..
