I loved my 2S Guppy V3 so much I had to build a 1S version as I actually like 1S better (for flying around my backyard at least).

I'm a little late to the FPV game so I had no idea that a 16x16 1S capable stack existed until a month ago! I ordered it as soon as I saw one avalaible (not from banggood) lol.

I put this little guy together and I'm WAY impressed! Flies better than my 2S version (albeit not as fast), and has 5-6 minute flight times with the 600mah 1S cells!

I was running a Runcam Nano 3 on it, but I wanted to try out the new Caddx Ant. I sorta like the Nano 3 better, but the Ant has better resolution and seems to do a little better in low light.

Definitely reccomend building a 1S Guppy. I'll be moving this to a V3 frame soon!

Edit: I designed and printed an Insta360 GO Mount for the quad, as well as designed and printed a 1S battery stray in the style of R3DShifters!

Good question! apparently I bought the very last one from goodventuredrones. I tried to buy another one from china but they turned me away :(. it really is the perfect stack for this frame IMO

do you think 802 16000 motors would work?

that should be fine so long as you stick with 40mm props!

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..
