The Rooster is finally shipping! Going to be using Oomph 2306 Titans, which should give a lot more power than the 2206 Oomph Velvets I use now on my Chameleon.

2/23/2018 - Have changed the camera to a Runcam Sparrow (its light handling is a bit better than the Monster v2 and was on a big sale) and the antenna plate to a TPU mount made by BMC3D.

1/20/2018 - Rooster finally arrived! Got it all together last night and maidened it this morning. She is tubby at over 400 grams dry weight, but the Titan Oomphs and Gemfan 5152 make for a rocket. This thing is so much faster than my Chameleon with Velvet Oomphs and the same props, it's crazy.

Do you have a picture of the Lipo wires connection to the VTX PDB at the rear brace. Does it clear everything ok or did you have to modify anything?

I just added another photo showing it. I have moved to a BMC3D printed antenna mount, but my lipo wire still runs through the bottom of the base plate.

Any arm slop without the braces?

jedimasterben   Jan 24, 2018 

None at all, even with the butter soft bolts. People are making a way bigger deal of it than it actually is IMHO, armattan included the nylocks for free and said the plates were completely unnecessary.

How far does the MMCX connector stick "out there" on the FCHUB-VTX? I plan to orient mine in the same direction but I'm concerned it may be too exposed - I'm a new pilot.

Maybe 5-6mm. It realistically barely sticks out of the frame.

how are the escs?

No issues out of them so far, but only have two batteries in it.

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..
