Gemini 2.5.2 freestyle

After flying the crap out of my original Gemini I thought I'd like to have a back up. The r-xsr, micro lux and Spedix 20a 4 in 1 have stayed the same in this one. The biggest change is the Sunnyskies. I haven't had a chance to thrash this one yet but in the los maiden these motors seem to have much more down low torque over the Hglrc 1104 7500's. It will be interesting to see the side by side difference in the two. I also have a set of the Rotorx 1107's that will be replacing the Hglrc's on my original Gemini so I should be able to find the ultimate combo for this set up.
EDIT. Flew this new rig 8 packs today and OMG the sunny's rock! my 5" quads ain't got anything on this. the biggest difference is the momentum you get throwing a big 5" into moves versus a little 2.5 coming at 90g but I'll take it.

whats your flight time? Im looking for a decent 3 mins of hardcore flight but i cant seem to find a reliable build yet. If these motors arent effecient...you think the 5500kv would be better for that longer flight?

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..
