This is the second quad I've built. I first built more of a freestyle oriented quad into an Armattan Chameleon 5" and it was pretty sloppy. I tried to get a bit cleaner with my first racing quad and this is the final product! I intend to swap the TBS Triumph for the stubby version of the same antenna to hopefully make it look even cleaner.

Super late reply but I'm 100 percent with you there. I love the props and they look cool too but the extra dollar per set really adds up after how often I'm forced to replace. I've been buying one or two sets of them here and there with a bunch of HQs on backup.

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..
