EDITED : Added Cobra CP2207 2450KV Mirror Motors + Aikon AK32 35A ESCs + AKK FX2 Ultimate VTX

This is basically an update of this earlier build https://rotorbuilds.com/build/10492
The frame is still holding up after numerous crashes, highly recommended! Am using generic OEM 30A BLHeli_S ESCs, I can't find the information online though, bought it from a local seller.

To be honest the Cobras are very underpowered for this heavy Rooster, looking to upgrade it to the 2450kv ones. 2300kv one overheats on this build, and I need to make sure not to overprop it as well. My backup motors are the DYS Samguk 2207 2600kv, those have been surprisingly good, but they sound soooooo whiny.

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..
