My first 5s build! The motors arent rated for it, but they are holding the 5s very well so far!

how are the economy motors? Also, have u noticed wether they run hotter than other motors? JB and myself have experienced problems where we cant turn off many filters becuase they get so hot

Sorry, never saw this! For the record, I never had this problem. i ran them on 2400kv 5s for a few solid months. i was careful to Blackbox tune it, being worried about the high kv. They did run warm, but i was able to run it with no filters at all. I also ran it on Butterflight with no issues. They never failed on me, but i have since moved on to a 5s 3" build. Cant recommend RCX enough!

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..
