Any problems pairing the ESC with the FC? I am doing a build with this stack and the motor 4 doesn't spin. No visible problems with the ESC, no shorts that I can find, the contacts between esc and fc are fine. Strangely, the motor mapping for m4 changed after BF update from 3.3.0 which was the original for the fc. Not sure it is the problem though. Thanks!

If you are asking how the XT60 fit into the frame. The answer is, the XT60 width is shorter than the width between the 2 side carbon fiber plate. As for the bottom clearance, it depends on your stack. I am using the airbot ori32 4in1 ESC, the main power wires are soldered under the ESC, so, enough space between the ESC and the main carbon fiber board is necessary. In my case, I use 4 long M3 nylon screw to hold the stack in position, under the ESC, I have 4 x 3D Printed standoff, which is around 5 mm high. These provide enough space for the wire as well as the strap under the ESC board.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

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..
