This frame is not made for the DJI HD kit, so I attached it to the bottom end and printed a 3d part and swapped the stock antennas out for 2 VAS ions (see pictures other than the cover photo, that was before improvement). I stack 2 1300 6s batteries on top of eachother in parallel.

This setup works amazingly well for me! Apart from it being a beautiful quad it also performs very very well (after tuning). The graupner e-prop 8inch propellers are great (do need to be balanced) but very hard to get your hands on. Oh and those XING motors, the sound is well... lets say; very orgasmic.

PS: Chase from Rebel did tell me they were working on a DJI conversion kit for the yeti frame, but this seems to be a typical "2 weeks" maybe never" project ;)

PS 2: If you do decide to get this frame, and like me you are not from the States be prepared to pay tax on arrival at customs, this happened to me in Spain. Sucked big chocolate balls!

Great build. Customs is the only thing holding me back. I am super annoyed that I have to pay for shipping twice.

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..
