You can learn more on the design philosophy and thinking process of this frame in this blog post: Is Ultralight 5 inch the New FPV Drones Hotness in 2021?
Note: The camera cage is designed to include a mounting hole for carrying optional HD camera like the Insta360 Go or GoPro Lite (Naked GoPro). The included hardware DOES NOT include standoffs and screws for this hole. The hole is purely for mounting HD camera, you don't need to add hardware under normal circumstances.
How to Build the Airblade Transformer 5" Ultralight Long Range FPV Drone
If you prefer to follow a written guide, here's a comprehensive and detailed build guide of the AirBlade Transformer Ultralight 5 inch Long Range FPV
The early success of the AirBlade Transformer Mini 4 inch setup had us thinking, why not 5 inch? So we started brainstorming the next product to add to our AirBlade Transformer line up in June of 2020 (yes, our development process actually takes a long time).
We almost had all the right ingredients for this setup:
The 26x26 AIO FCs were getting better and better with more UART ports, more features.
We can definitely design a 5 inch frame.
The Li-Ion batteries we were testing are able to handle bigger setups
The only missing piece here is the motor, hence that's where we started
We started testing a different AirBlade Superman motor and landed with the new AirBlade Superman 1905.
When we set out to design the frame, we had a same goals we had when we designed the AirBlade Transformer Mini 4 inch:
Compact design for easy transportation
Yet spacious enough to build with a dual stack design
No props in camera view
Compatible with a wide variety of electronics
Compatible with Caddx Vista for those who run DJI HD system
Double stack design with 16x16 (only in the back), 20x20 (both front and back) and 26x26 (only in the front) mounting holes
Top-mounted battery design, large battery slot to use existing big battery straps
Compatible with micro FPV camera, like RunCam Hybrid, as well as Caddx Vista
Fixed-height top plate at 20mm
