Touring 122

Description:
The Touring 122 is a frame and canopy system designed to carry the HDZero Nano 90 camera with the upgraded 1.8 mm HDZ3301 lens. The focus of this frame is a balance between performance and quality of life refinement. To this end, the canopy features a one of a kind quick release system. Loosening just 1 screw allows removal of the canopy and gives full unobstructed access to the flight controller and VTX. The frame also features functional cross bracing so that standard battery straps can be used to secure the battery. Like the WarPig 122 the frame, the Touring 122 intended for 1203 - 1204/1303 2-3 S builds with 3 inch props. The 122 mm size is the minimal wheelbase that will keep the air clean under/around the props, which maximizes both agility and efficiency. In the 4 mm thickness, the frame should be tolerant of fairly noisy builds. Clean lower power builds can save a little weight with the 3 mm thickness.

My build:

I developed this build specifically to carry the HDZero Nano 90 FPS camera with the upgraded M8 lens in small flyimg spaces. I found that the 13mm in the 6350 kv on 2S with the Gemfan 3020 props gave me the low end throttle curve I needed while maintaining descent flight time and punchout. For larger spaces I would go with the extra power of the RCinpower 1204 5000kv on 3S.

One thing to keep in mind with this build is that everything fits like glove. In particular, the stack needs to be kept reasonably low as room is tight behind the camera.

Huge FPVcycle fan myself. I love that full carbon toothpick frame you're using. I want one now.

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..
