I seem to have the best luck. I had three good AirBlade Superman AB1404 motors on hand and decided to repurpose them with this build even though they ran a bit heavy at about 9g/ea but my target is about 5g/ea for this build. I ordered one motor to complete the set. It arrived with a completely different build than the other three motors. Anyway, deciding if I will return and pick up the super light and efficient FPVCycle 1303s when they come back in stock which at this moment looks like never. What would you do? Fly with two style motors or return it and buy a new set while shelving the other three indefinitely? AirBlade told me the manufacturer went out of business so I will have to find this particular motor second hand... The new motor is shorter by a good few millimeters although I am told it will not affect flight performance. idk

That jello is insane. As long as you cannot hear those oscillations by ear , it must just be rhe camera mount. rhe beebrain mount has done well for me.

i haven't been able to pick up on oscillations audibly so i also suspected the camera mount. thanks for the recommend, someone on instagram just made the same recommendation earlier today. I'll order it up 👍

Check the lens, they may be loose (but then it would probably be out of focus too)

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..
