Pretty much just your run of the mill 1s toothpick build, however with an emphasis on durability.

Frame is the Sanchez ultralight by Dave C fpv, 2.5mm thick as I have broken many 2mm frames in the past. I think this frame ends up being the perfect combo of light and durable, while also looking quite sharp imo.

Motors are the same as on the Emax nanohawk X

AIO FC is the HGLRC Zeus5, I run this board on my 2s 3inch and it has been super reliable, hopefully it should be the same with this quad.

HeadsupFPV tri blades as I prefer the way tris handle and they are quite low pitched being suitable for 1s.

I see your 2s 3" in some of your photos, are you running the emax 1407 4100kv motors on it? I ask because I run the motors I just described, on a 3" that I use a 4 cell battery with. Now i'm SO curious about it? Or are they some higher kv that I don't know they sell? Or are they awesome the way you are using them too!!? (I LOVE mine, probably the best handling drone I have built in 6 years, across at least 30+ builds)

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..
