HyphyMultirotors Hyphy 7" Long Range

7  743  3

Built this as a longer-range filming platform that could do some "dumber" stuff.

No motors or batteries are listed because they're the motors and batteries from the DRL Racer 3.

1800kv BrotherHobby 2206 with custom N52 magnets.
1800mah 5s from Pulse.

This rig runs betaflight 3.1.7, but I need to switch it over to 3.2 with dynamic filtering to try to remove the warbles at some weird throttle settings.

Cool video that got me here. I find those Idealprop 6048 props so damn awesome to fly, but really tough to get the vibes out of. HQ 6045 triblades carbon fiber blend have been the best for filming for me so far, SUPER smooth and little wash. I fly a heavy quad on F80 2408 2200kv on 1300mah 5S so you might want to try those HQ CF 6045 triblades if you have not.

Hi leprechaun,
I've just realised I have bought the parts for an almost identical build as your F80 and was wondering what kind of amp draw you were getting on those carbon fibre props? (I'll be running 4s)

I don't use an OSD, but my Aikon 30a escs handle them fine. They are rated for 30a/40 burst but I rarely punch it more than 3 or 4 seconds, I fly freestyle only really. Those escs handle those props on 5S, so I would assume any 30a would be fine unless you are really pounding the throttle. My next escs for that quad are gonna be those Wraith32 plus which can do 50a since I want to at least try 6S lol
That quad also kills batteries, only graphene last for any length of time, and HV batteries are eradicated in a few packs lol. Hobbyking Graphene and Dinogy graphene last a good while on that quad. Batteries always come down a bit hot though.

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..
