This is my 3rd freestyle quad i've ever built and the last one i built was about a year ago so it's been a while. For this build i wanted to go for something that looked good, durable, good layout and wasn't bulky. That is why i choose the Hyperlow CG frame. To me it met all the requirements i had for my next freestyle quad. Now for the components. I knew i wanted to go for a Crossfire build eventually and now that the Crossfire Micro and nano RX came out i felt it was a good time to go that route. For the FC i wanted to try a stack so i went with the hobbywing stack. I do worry it wont last since i will be banging the quad up (almost too pretty to) but so far its been good. For the motors i have always loved Lumenier motors, i have lumenier 2206 2450kv motors on my other freestyle build and loved them. So for this build the Lumenier 2207 2700kv Jonny FPV motors looked interesting to me so i wanted to try them out. Other than that i went with what i was used to swift 2 cam, TBS unify v3 and added some whitenoise race wire to stop my wires from getting chopped up.

Update #1: Maiden went well but the weather hasnt been that good so ill have to wait for a sunny and dry day to tune her. Otherwise the motors feel good, really smooth and punchy. I'll get some pictures of it outside in the sun once the weather clears up.

This quad is decked out. I'd be cool to see it "blacked out" since the motors are already black. :)

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..
