My Lightest frame so far.

Meet the Drone Art AEON

Created by Soma the legendary designer that brought us the Impulse Alien frame.
The AEON series of the frame was designed from the very beginning stages to be one of the lightest and strongest frames on the market

Alt Tag
There are 3 base frame options.
UL12 at 26g
UL16 at 32g
AEON HD at 39g
I went with the UL16 for my build, hope I dont break it too quickly

Alt Tag
The FPV camera mount and hood supports the Runcam Micro Swift 2,
Runcam Micro Swift 3 ,
Runcam Micro Eagle and Foxeer Predator Micro
My build features the Runcam Micro Swift 2, but I think ill switch to the predator (because its red lol)

Alt Tag
The Motors are at 2305 size and 2500kv. They can support up to 6s which will be insane.
I believe the motors are made by T Motor
So far I have only had a few flights, my first impression is they are so smooth and the throttle feels so linier.

Alt Tag
Weight with T Motor props is 214 grams

Alt Tag
Weight with a 1300 4s battery

Alt Tag
Weight with a 1600 4s battery

Alt Tag
For this build I used a Hobbywing Xrotor 40A ESC
These ESC's are rated to 5s, but I have had no issue running 6s on some of my other builds

Alt Tag
The battery straps are the best I have ever seen
The frame kit also has some optional Lipo pads, but for my build I will be using some Velcro tape to hold the battery in place during races.

Alt Tag
Photo for weight reference, this is the Floss 2 with canopy.
Up until now this has been my lightest quad.

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..
