I won these motors on a RMRC giveaway so I built the rest of this 4s 7" beast around them. It's my first 7" quad so I'm sure tuning will be a challenge. Hopefully Butterflight and the Helio Spring will do some of the hard work for me :)

Thanks. I really took my time with this one. I will maiden it tomorrow. Hope everything goes well.

How was the maiden? As far as range, did it get some distance without a Crossfire or R9 setup?

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..
