UAVfutures 110mph+ build

This is my take on the 110mph+ build by UAVfutures. I am using some slightly different components then what was recommended. Definitely not as cheap as Stu's builds. I used some more expensive components that are probably totally unnecessary. All-up weight with a CNHL 100c 1500mah 4s is about 500g. UAVfutures PIDs

how do you like that fc? ive had it ever since botgrinder did his vid on it but just havent got it in a build yet still gathering parts and wound up getting a hawk 5 a month or so ago lol

deadmoo   Jun 05, 2018 

I have put this board and very similar boards with different branding, Racerstar version, in 3 different builds now. It seems more suited to freestyle then racing, after using it in both types of builds. But it works, leads to clean and easy build, and it has been reliable.

cool thanks. ive had it for a bit and finally got my motors in a couple weeks ago but due to work and having to much fun with my emax hawk 5 i havent had time to build it, hopefully soon tho lol. its going in a freestyle rig. qav-r frame, racedayquads 2205 2450kv motors, rotor riot v2 camera, xm+ and either a tramp vtx or vtx03, i have both just not sure what all room i will have but prolly going with the vtx03 since this will be a basher.

What kind of battery life are you getting?

deadmoo   Dec 20, 2017 

I just finished the build. I have only gotten a chance to hover test. Hopefully, I will have some time to fly it a bit this weekend. I am guessing probably like 4min the way I fly (slow noob). But more like 2min at high speed the entire flight. Just a guess though based on the weight and motor prop combination.

deadmoo   Dec 25, 2017 

Finally got to fly it. Can confirm about 4min, the way that I fly.

Hot! What's the weight without battery?

deadmoo   Dec 20, 2017 

It is about 300g without my battery. You can probably get it lighter if you trim the motor wires etc better than I have. I probably have at least 10g of unneeded wire length coiled up in there.

Also the replacable arms on this frame are 6mm thick. You could get a lot lighter with a 5mm or even 4mm thick single bottom plate frame. I like how strong this frame is though because I crash a lot.

RobbertSegers   Dec 20, 2017 

looks solid indeed, i'm a little scared for my ghost arms. I try to avoid crashes, but when I do, its face down full throttle :) , curious to how they stand up in crashes. Would be a little more comfortabel if they were 6mm ;)

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..
