Diamond hands baby, taking GoatCoin TO THE MOON!

This was my first build ever, this is about the final iteration as I experimented with motors, stacks, RC links and tuning. The frame is fantastic, really takes a beating and has very little vibrations present in the blackbox logs. The S4 props are for 4s use, P3s are for 6s. The 1900kv motors allow me to do both reasonably well, and I have a 80% throttle cut on my radio for 6S use. Braiding 5" motor wires is hard, but man it looks so classy. Also makes cutting a wire less likely as theres no wires outside of the frame that can get caught on something during a crash.

I made my own arm pads, gopro mounts and antenna mounts for it as well.

Great build! Just curious do you prefer this frame or your Glide? I wanted this frame but waited several months for it to come off backorder. Finally gave up and ordered another Glide instead. I see that they are back in stock and was wondering if they are worth it?

Cool video. That looks like an amazing spot to fly. Interesting that your Glide flys loose. Are you running Betaflight? Default PIDs? Both of my Glides are very tight and locked fliers. That is what I like so much about them compared to my other 5" rigs. Thanks for the comparison between the two. The

Yea I'm only on defaults thus far. Its not "loose", its very much locked in but it just feels like it has more momentum and you have to take advantage of that in your flying.

Gotcha. Mine are both pretty light builds so they dont carry alot of momentum. I have a big heavy Rooster build for that.

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..
