4s TP3 is more popping but a bit shorter flight time.
3s TP3 is more efficient, longer flight time.
they both flies really nice.
finally we got proper setups for ultra light weight 3", because of 1303 motors and gemfan 3018 props and of course, whoop boards.

i'm using modula7 aio whoop camera with vtx chopped off and using tbs pro32 nano vtx
i'm using Gnb 3s 450mah 47g with 16awg wires leads.
weight: 64g dry
betaflight 4.0.6 with community presets 11xx ( https://github.com/betaflight/betaflight/wiki/Community-Presets )

on 3s: tpa: 0.5 1600 and no throttle cut.

on 4s: lowered P gain and D gain by 5. TPA: 0.5 1550
throttle cut 70% ( clipped, not scale )

note: 3s 1303. no throttle cut.

note: 4s 1303. throttle cut 70% ( clipped, not scale )

Holy crap man.. I've been debating running 4s on one of my tp3's, and that video just made me decide to actually do it. The amount of punch out on 4s looked pretty damn high. Maybe it's just the wide angle whoop lens, but it looked like a fair bit more of a ripper than the 3s.. What do you think??

yup it's a lot faster on 4s

Dude thank you. Haven't found much for footage on 4s other than this. Have you tried the 1304 version??

i really want to try 1304, but i can't find them anywhere. i hope some companies would make them.

Wait im confused what size battery packs are you using? 1500? 0.0

matthew saigon   May 11, 2020 

lol, no. are you talking about this ? " on 3s: tpa: 0.5 1600 and no throttle cut. " meaning, on 3s batteries, TPA is 0.5 and TPA breakpoint is 1600. they're setting for betaflight 4.0. but my PID is ok, they're not very good. i need to rebuild it and tune it again someday.

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..
