Got the new Foxeer Falkor for my Hyperlow CG. So I figured this would be a good time to show the build log of my daily quad. I've probablly got 250+ packs on this frame and it still looks great and holding up strong! Since it was getting some upgrades, I tore it down and cleaned all the parts.

I designed the XT60/AXII Mount, as well as the CAP holder and the Beeper mount.

I also decide to run antenna tubes for the TBS Crossfire Nano. Several times they have folded up when running through trees and not a scratch. Just fold them out and I'm back in the air. :) I do most proximity flying, so I'm not concerned about the placement and for the most post I usually have LQ 99%.

I've been flying a Foxeer Monster v2 (also a 1200tvl, just the previous generation high end Foxeer 1177 size fpv cam) for almost 2 years now, and I LOVE it. How do you feel about the Falcor?

Dude! Nice! That's been the goto cam for a lot of pilots over the years. I retired a v1.... I'm just going to say this .... Currently I will never buy another camera .... Falkor ... :) It's literally perfect out of the box. The Light/dark transistions are amazing. Don't even get me started on the low light compensation. I forget that it's dark out when I take my goggles off :)

I've literally done nothing to it and every single person that get's in my head ... comments on the quality of the video.

And now that the Micro version has released I'll pretty much replace the Micro Eagels that I run.

Good looks! Happy flying!

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..
