This thing flies great and is proof that things do not need to cost an arm an arm and a leg and sometimes componetnts will work fine and fly nicely even though they might not on paper.. This is a nice chamfered frame with good components and this budget build is a great reminder to just go fly and have fun!

Kudos on the budget build! Your flying skills are impressive, and it's a great reminder that you don't need to spend a fortune to have an amazing time in the air. The chamfered frame and components seem to be working seamlessly, showcasing that sometimes paper specs don't tell the whole story.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
