AirbladeUAV Intrepid 4"

The AirbladeUAV Intrepid 4". One of my oldest quads, and still one of the best flying and easiest to tune. A total workhorse.

The Racekraft 4040s are stiff, I would say stiffer than the HQ V1S 4" props, and are the exact same shape as the older glass fiber HQ 4040s but more durable. They fit the 2800kv F30 motors pretty well.

Surprisingly, the HD footage from the Split 2 on this build is very nice, smoother, and has less rolling or jello than my larger quads. It's flying really well and I'm very happy with the tune, which isn't far from defaults.

When it's time to go check something out over the hill or mess with a low flying weather system this is the quad I tend to grab the most.

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..
