Lungo Americano

Trying something different today. 6" 6s HD cruiser. Not necessarily going for looooong range here, just something I can cruise around with at cool spots. So went with the Raggio Lungo frame as it had 6/7" prop flexibility plus some nice 3D printed mounts Larry's already made up.

Build was easy, this thing has plenty of room for everything. Went with separate ESCs to make sure the stack would fit but I think it's do-able with a 4in1 ESC now. Also check out those Demon 2207 1750kv motors. A bit more Kv than I wanted but they're sold by a local and brand new to market so I wanted to support them.

Frame edges are painted in my signature white trim. White paint pen covered with a thin layer of superglue. Protects the edges AND looks awesome.

Let us know how the Demon motors work for you. Greg is a pretty cool guy so I'd like to try some on a future build.

So far so good, smooth and more power than I probably need on a cruiser. I like the big bearings in them, should be reliable although I don't plan on wrecking them into gates.

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..
