Built around the BMC3D Extruder frame, this quad's weight and size makes an ideal build for the ultimate all around quad. Having it top mount with an HD cam and still having a compact size is another plus for me. The design features make this frame a pleasure to build. Having press nuts on the bottom plate means less hardware to worry about and a much shorter height. Being able to have a stack that is 3 tall and still have a neat and compact build is a plus for me. AUW with HD cam and 5s 1300 lipo only comes out to 612g. Thats a very reasonable weight to have while flying fully loaded on this rig.

you and me both . i wish runcam would hurry up with their solution. As of right now, i did smash that gopro session along with a 5s battery during a bad powerloop into the concrete. luckily, i had the bestbuy warranty but they could only replace it with a hero 5 black which is 40g heavier and is as ugly as sin.

So how come you're not worried about your FC breaking if you chuck a battery?

You mean like ripping off the pig tail from the 4 in 1? If that's what you mean then yea I kinda do worry about it, I might add a zip tie for strain relief to take some of the stress if the battery gets chucked out.

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..
