OpenRacer DJI O3 30x30 Stack Build V4

This is my forth (obsessive) build inspired by Limon's OpenRacer 5inch frame (see https://rotorbuilds.com/build/30851). Here my mods include a more centered GoPro mount, a lower positioned capacitor holder, a rear mounted antenna holder (hold's both ELRS & Crossfire), & a 3mm taller canopy (30 to 50 degree viewing angle) for full 30x30 stacks. You don't need the frame spacers in my previoius builds, just a 4.5 spacer on top of the 10mm standoffs. In this build I'm using Limon's 5.5 inch arms for more stability (flies better). Also made GoPro mount holder for a small but intense LED flashlight I found on Amazon. Thingieverse TPU stl files & build notes are below. Let me know what you think. God's speed

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..
