I built this as a park flyer sometime back and have really been impressed with the overall durability and efficiency of the rig.The AKK FX3 and Furious Pagoda have been a great combo and works very well in the wooded area that I like to fly in. I have yet to push it out to failsafe, but Im also unwilling to walk that far looking for 3 incher behind every tree.
This is not the fastest or the lightest in my fleet, but with over a 100 packs on her she is still fun to fly.

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..
