why did you choose the 2300kv version?

e_z_chee_z   Apr 12, 2018 

What version would you have gotten? I was just going off a recommendation

Ruxys   Apr 12, 2018 

2700, but thats my opinion just because stew had those. idk whats better. looking at the hawk 5 seems like 2300kv motors are still good too

Was this the one that replaced the one that fell into a river? :)

e_z_chee_z   Mar 29, 2018 

Lol yup. I already broke the frame though. Turns out counter sinking your screws on 2mm carbon really creates a weak spot. So I transplanted all the parts to a uav 210

Wow, rought start to the hobby. At least you're persisting! Eventually you'll have a couple working quads to choose from ;)

how have the motors been so far. Some say that u cant trust the qc of these motors but i cant find a single incident of it on the internet

I havnt flown more than 50 packs but i think its all bullshit. people just like to brag about their expensive motors. although in this set they sent me a blank prop nut lol

You can't beat those for the $. Same reason I love my eachine ev800d goggles. Nobody can tell me fatshark is worth the $, unless you are worried about low profile looks. Not here. I'll take the money I saved and build another quad!

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..
