Thicc 3.0 10" 8S build X8

So... I wanted a big drone. And I wanted it 8S.

Important notes:

  1. I had to switch FC in the middle of the build due to the T-Motor F7 Full pro acting very weird (No OSD, RX not working correctly, buzzer not working). So you might see a photo with the T-Motor F7 but in the end, I used BrainFPV Radix HD 2
  2. I had to drill the holes myself in the frame using a Dremel, this was easier than I thought but the frame simply doesn't accomodate 8IN1 ESC nor O3.
  3. I gave up on the GPS
  4. I could have used the 3120 instead of 3115 motors, I simply didn't know they existed when I got the 3115.

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..
