This is rebuild of my previous build "Barracuda" (https://rotorbuilds.com/build/3612). Drone was made for freestyle a year ago and it's time to upgrade it to the next level. So i decided to install new fc - HelioRC Spring. Old pdb doesn't match new fc, ordered Matek FCHUB-6S. RE200 Beast-X V2 frame is very strong and i like it looks. Other parts are pretty good, no need to upgrade it.

Fc flashed with Butterflight 3.5.2 MSD 1.0.0 IMUF 1.0.7 ODIN. CPU load is about 11% with DShot600 and 16/16 gyro/pid loops.

I love it. Do you get props in the camera? Id like to do something like this but with a split.

Split has much wider lens, so props will get in a video.

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..
