I am building this to be a mid-weight 4-inch ripper and to have slightly longer flight times and strong video for some medium range flying on a small scale

Its taken a few atempts and a fire but I am finally happy with this build. I might print out a smaller pod for a runcam mini but this will do for now have test hovered it and just need to wait for the weather to clear for some proper flights

I also do need to order a new lens this one is cracked but I can see perfectly fine

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!
