Hey interesting build I'm looking to do something similar. Did you wire the VTX to the 5v bec output on the FC? I see whoop lite is rated for 1s to 3s but Im trying to figure out how I can put it on a 4s build safely

DFPV   Nov 07, 2023 

Yes I have connected it to the bec but you should make sure that the bec can supply the power that the HDZero whoop lite needs

DFPV   Nov 07, 2023 

The hdZero whoop lite is specified with a consumer of 7 watts, so your 5 V bec should be capable of at least 1.5 A continuous load

thanks for the reply and explanation. How is the range on this setup? Do you usually keep it maxed out?

building my own right now. what's your AUW (all-up weight, including battery)? interesting motor choice, btw. flight time aside, how does it fly? how much throttle does it take to hover? 1500kv is pretty cold-blooded. for comparison, my freestyle quads use 1850kv motors on 6s to swing a 5" prop, lifting 700g+. i'm using 1604 2850kv motors on 6s, so they'll spin almost twice as fast using the same current.

The drone itself weighs 230 grams and the battery another 87. Just take a look at the new photos. i would make a video of the behaviour at the weekend where you can see my stick inputs. i think it flies very well and with the 1500 kv motors it is a compromise with the flight time.

Nice - I would recommend you get a full size TPU mount for the ThumbPro over the tiny one that comes with it. Greatly reduces vibrations in my experience and can be found easily on Etsy or Ebay. Would also recommend you get that camera angle up to at least 30 degrees if you're ready. Cheers

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..
