5" ultralight midrange FPV drone

The goal was to create an ultralight 5" machine. Since the frame I was looking at was out of stock, I set about designing one. The preliminary goals were to create a light, yet stiff frame that was roomy enough to accommodate the O3 Air Unit and an AIO stack. The main plate is 5mm, the bottom plate is 2mm, the top plate is 1.5mm. The bottom plate and top plate are identical except for their thickness. The goal was to stay within 75 grams, and the frame itself was 68 grams with 7075 aluminum screws. The O3 camera mount is custom-designed and can accept standard TBS ND filters. Weak points of the frame, which will have to be fixed later: there are only O3 air unit mounting holes at the back. The stack can only be a maximum of 33mm AIO, because there is too little space next to the standoffs.

It is without a doubt that it will fly more steadily and competently if it is designed in such a way. basketball stars

With such a design, I'm sure it will fly more stable and better

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..
