TBS Source one + Mamba Stack

This is my first FPV drone build.
The camera is too big for the frame so I had to improvise. - Also I don't recommend this frame, one of the standoffs doesn't work and the arms can move slightly.
I also bought a charger that only works at 4 amps so I had to by another one
And I originally bought a Frsky XM+ as my reciever but then I discovered it won't bind to my Literadio 2 SE, so I bought a D8 reciever instead.
I also started off using the runcam tx200u as my vtx but realised it had problems and also wasnt powerful enough, so I upgraded to the speedybee tx800.
It flies super smooth and it's very powerful but I think that's normal in racing/freestyle drones.

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..

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..
