Okay, so the Studs life CEO came over to my house and insisted I write this build up. No, actually he WARPED into my house riding on https://rotorbuilds.com/build/12293 this quad. Was pretty insane. Must've been a 6s high kv thing.

Safety Third Quad Camp number 5 (oh yea) build. I always seem to end up building at these events, but this one was so much fun! It's a relatively simple build but the simplicity is what makes it very cool. Receiver is tucked away between the plates sammiching the arms in place, which leaves plenty of room for all the components you need up top. The branded race wire is freaking awesome too.

Only complaint about the ENTIRE build is that I cannot get the freestyle F4 board to output s.Port telemetry and therefore I cannot get lua scripts. Beyond that, this build is sick as fuck and feels amazing. Top mounted battery is a fresh feeling. 494g with battery.

Good to know I'm not going insane because I can't get telemetry to work on this thing either. I'm wondering if they bullshitted us and it doesn't have an inverter on tx3. You never got it working right?

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..
