Tried to do as clean of a build as I could hoping the frame is stable enough to keep the worst of the jello out. I know where the hype is these days (planning that next) but I really liked the FlexRC Komori frame that I got stuck hopelessly high up in the tree above the house. So this one is dedicated to the lost Komori!

The weight without a battery is 127g.

Looks nice !! I am building mine (actually finished it) but have huge noise in the FPV-feed, lines going zig zag when throttling up. Have tried all in the book to change that to no avail...........bummer. I have come to the preliminary diagnosos this must be from ESC/motor wires close to/under the Split. Not going to change that now........will fly it a while to see how it flies.........

Also, this frame may be more stable than El Camino

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..
