Hey there Mr. Fellstar... we met over on the Helio Slack. :) Nice build here. I'm between these and the Neutron right now. But I'm like going to run 20x20 electronics with 6S. I like the weight and design of these. Not sure that it will be an easy build or how durable compared to the Neutron, but definitely interesting. I'm aiming for a superlight 6S build with 2205/1722kv... and a 1000mah 6s.

First one is a pain, but once you figure out how you want to build them, and take it a part a few times, it's a really nice package!

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..
