Spare part build

I had a spare AIO fc/esc as well as a shit tonne of other random parts so I decided to try and build something mostly because I was bored. Little did I know I ended up creating a beast, this little thing is smooth af, has loads of power, and flies for 5-8 minutes of hardish freestyle. Runs off 550mah 3s packs and all up weight is 61g which I am very happy with. Honestly one of the best flying quads I have flown, and I have built/bought 20+ drones.

The frame is a damaged betafpv frame of some sort I forget the exact name but it was cracked on both sides under the screw holes where the FC would go. To stiffen it up, I (safely) cut up another frame to brace where it was perviously broken. So far it has held up well, I have done one session with it so far where I flew 6 packs and crashed a few times into the metal of a playground and no issues so far. Funny story as well, this frame was stuck in a tree (diff components though, was a 1s build at the time) for over 7 months before it eventually fell out, worked perfectly fine after, components still work fine to this day but moved to different frame after this one broke.

The motors are flywoo 1202.5 5500kv which I had lying around and they seem to work perfectly. Had to extend the wires as they were previously on a 2inch.

The AIO is a flywoo 13a 3s thing which I have used in a bunch of my 2s-4s micro builds (I think I have 6?? quads using this aio) and I have found this AIO to be the most reliable I have tried by far, I have only killed one by crashing into a puddle.

Camera is a caddx ant and it is ziptied to the frame bc one of the screw mounts on the camera is broken.

Vtx is some flywoo thing that is mounted in a wierd way but it works.

Running expresslrs ofc.

Ignore parts list, is not accurate

all up weight or dry weight 61g? pretty sure that battery alone is about 43g.

Just the right amount of jank, and plenty of dank. Nice! Have any flight footage?

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..
