Such a nice build. I've been building a raiju with almost this exact same setup. I'm having major issues with the quad twitching though. What version of BF are you running? You're still using multishot?

looks great. i am puzzling how did you connect motor 5 and 6 to the Fc

i think i used PPM and LED contacts remapped using BF resource commands.  Had to use multishot instead of dshot due to DMA conflicts.

Looks like it has a vast power.
Did you manage to remove the jello?

Jello comes and goes. I'm still working on the tune, my camera mount can slide down such that the camera touches the bottom plate, and I had a bent prop in this video. With my current tune and clean props, I don't get jello unless the camera slides down. I should probably put a piece of foam tape under it.

Thanks for posting this!! I've been wanting to build a 1407 hex and didn't want to tear down my Raiju to do it. I just bought this frame... can't beat that price.

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..
