Hi, I must say I spent lots of time planning out how to get all my electronics in this 18mm height, but once done so proud of this build the way it turned out. This guy simply rips the sky open on full throttle with the Sunnysky motors. It handles an performs so well, just cannot get enough of it. Ripping around in my front yard as never been more enjoyable. Of all my builds this one in particular will always remain high on the list. You cannot hurt this frame if you put arm guards on. Not only protect motors also frame, and isolates against vibrations as well. Using Betaflight with all notch fliters off with Dynamic Filtering enabled it fiies incredilbly. I have to let it rest sometime when I am ripping hard, the motors get quite warm. They are 1104 7500KV, and they really perform on this size and weight. If you mock this build you will not be unhappy at all, trust me.

Cool build - any flight videos?

This build turned out nicely for me. Lots of planning in order to fit everything into this 18mm height. Not easy, but once done I must say it is a wonderful flyer. I have many quads, but I have to say this one will always remain high on my list. It simply rips the sky open on full throttle. Simply sreams across the sky with miniumal effort. I simply cannot get enough of this little guy flying around in my front yard tearing up the trees and obstacles.

All I can say here is fun, fun, fun, fun. I simply cannot get enough of this little guy. It rips so hard, and flies so good, just simply cannot get enough. Been flying now for about a month. Took a nose dive on concrete, one small scratch to camera lens in very center has taught me now to move it back more with more tilt. I love flying FPV, it is very addicting, especially when you do your own builds. I must say of all my builds this one will always be at the top of the list.

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..
