Chimp frame, GepRC version (4mm)
Unbreakable so far; really happy with it. Comes with a ledboard and capacitor

Clean build with the HGLRC AlO all-in-one F4 board.
It has an fc, pdb, osd, and switchable vtx on board. Mmcx connector, led-indicator lights, buzzer port, betaflight compatible, also to program the osd. Great board, can't recommend it enough. Unbeatable for the price imho.

Camera is the original Runcam Eagle in black, was expensive back then, but worth it. It turned out very black, so decided to give the props a weird colour. The gopro session is really difficult to mount on it, because the strap would go over the lens. You'd need some kind of strap plate like this 3Dprint on thingiverse: That design looks a bit flimsy, so I'm hoping me or someone els has the time to design a better, more snug fitting one. Let me know if you do!

I fly it with the Turnigy Evo controller, too bad this receiver for it doesn't have rssi (technically possible, but a wiring nightmare)
Flies good with stock PID's, but still needs to be tuned properly.

Net step is to minimize the antenna, and safeguard the ESC's better (one started smoking on contact with the frma through the mesh cover, but turned out ok later. Needs some electrical tape on the arms)

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..
