Floss Twin

I needed a twin to my racer with the same flight characteristics so if something broke I had a backup. I decided to use a different stack than my original racer but same frame and motors. The Hyperlite FC was great to work with, very easy to connect and solder to with a completely flat bottom so very easy to fit into a tight stack if needed. It also has lots of open and accessible UARTs, I'm using 3 and still have 3 available. The Spedix ESC is brand new and there's not much about it yet but I've had good luck with Spedix and this was no exception. Very nice design and very little noise. In fact, without a cap I am getting completely clean video. EMAX has released their new RS line of motors but my original was built with the LS motors so I stuck with them. They are good and great for the track. They spin up fast and have lots of power and I haven't had any issues with them at all.

Initial test hover and punch out went off without a hitch and test flight went great. Hopefully the weather will hold out and the true track test will be this Saturday.

Maiden test flight. Nothing special, just checking the video and making sure everything performed as expected. Motors were cool and everythign went fine. I got the problem with the current display worked out and made some other adjustments. Ready for the track this weekend.

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..
