I'm really happy with my Space One FPV Aurora frame and this one is only $19.95 so I picked one up to give it a try.

It came with 35mm standoffs, camera mounting plates and a rear VTx antenna mounting plate. I ordered some blue 20mm standoffs and drew up some TPU mounts for the Runcm Micro Swift and ditched the rear antenna mount. I did need to use 4 - 2mm TPU spacers to lift the top plate slightly.

I still would prefer to use 4 separate ESCs but since this frame is designed for a 4-in-1 and I wanted to use 5S I went with the DYS F30a. It's rotated in the frame 90 degrees CCW so that the battery pads line up with the battery pads on the flight controller. The signal wire for motor 3 is on the pad for motor 1 of the FC, wire 1 is on pad 2, wire 4 is on pad 3 and wire 2 is on pad 4.

I've used the BetaFlight F3 flight controller on several builds and like it's features and layout so now that the BFF4 is available I used one for this quad. It's soft mounted with anti vibration standoffs to minimize vibrations reaching the gyro.

I'm using the HyperLite V4 naked 2206-2722kv motors with Gemfan 5042 Windancer props. I'm using these motors on 3 builds now and really like the performance/ flight times that they offer.

The rest of the electronics consist of an Eachine VTX03, LemonRX DSMX satellite and Runcam Swift Micro Swift 2 with the 2.3mm lens.

The AUW without a battery is 271 grams.

Beautiful build! I just picked one of these frames up. Were the 3D printed camera mount files ever uploaded to Thingiverse? If so, would you please share the link.

I dug up the file for the cam mounts and posted them on Thingiverse for you. You can find them here.

Thank you!

Beautiful build. Very clean... building one myself. Meteor 5” X and had the same thoughts. Going with a 4 in 1 so I wanted to lower the standoff’s to perhaps 25mm. Do you have that file for the camera ? Does it work with all types of cams or is for file specific for The RC Micro ? Thanks in advance.

I am also building a SpaceOne Meteor. We seem to have chosen a lot of the same parts. I am concerned with the camera mounting. I was going to use the Swift 2 mounts sold on PyroDrone, but those are for the floss. Given that you have built this before, I want to ask if those will work and if not, could you share your mount design with me? Thanks!

Thanks, I'll upload the file to Thingiverse this weekend and reply here with a link for you.

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..
