How do you like the AKK FX3? And does it have a M2 or M3 mounting hole? I'm planning on using a similar stack.

It uses M3. I'm liking it so far, although I haven't tested it over 200mW yet. Smart Audio is working fine. To be honest it seems like a bit overkill for a 2" build. The AKK Nano 2 is smaller/lighter and also has SA. I bought a Nano 2 and plan on trying it on my current project, a lightweight 3" build. The FX3 would probably be better on a lightweight 4" or 5" using a 20x20mm stack. Also, some people are having issues with the mmcx and ufl connectors coming off. AKK appears to be soldering the connectors on by hand with inconsistent QC. One of mine had almost no solder on the connector, and another had a huge blob of solder on one of the grounds. I would recommend checking the connector and possibly resoldering if it looks shoddy.

Nice setup! How you have setup betaflight for motor mapping and FC orientation? I planned to build a 3" with Omnibus F4 nano & Ori32 4in1 ESC.
Are you happy with setup?

I'm very happy with the Omnibus F4 Nano/Ori32 ESC combo. It's a tad heavy for micros but should be just fine on a 3" build. In fact I ordered the same combo for my next build which happens to be a 3". As you can see in my photo I have the ESC with the pads facing up and battery pads facing the rear. I'm pretty sure for this orientation I just needed to swap motor 1 and 4 resources in BF. For the FC I kept it upright and rotated the board 180 degrees, that way the USB port is still on the side for easy access and the ESC connector is in the front matching the ESC.

Sure it's the orientation the more natural for this combo. Thank you so much for your answer and your photos.

What are you using for a battery strap? 'Normal' length is too long, the XHover 'Micro' ones are too short with a 3S 450. I'm using a bit of dual lock and a regular velcro strip for now.

Yup! haha. I've been using Velcro brand one-wrap thin ties. They come in 8 1/2" so I just trim to length. They're cheap (50ct for $4-5) and they are very thin so they slide under components easily. They hold very well, but they don't grip, so you definitely need something underneath to hold the battery in place. I use foam tape with low profile hook and loop on top. Once I strap it down it's solid.

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..
