This frame is definitely something different! Please post your impressions once you take it for a flight.

For racing I'm keeping it as light as I can to avoid destroying frames constantly. I'm flying a 2mm 5" version of the frame. The components I'm using are Hyperlite 2205 2522kv, a Bardwell V2 fc, and the racerstar/rcharlance 35a 6s esc (awesome cheap esc btw). I fly it with 1300's bottom mounted with the stack built on top of the frame like you see here. The frame itself is surprisingly configurable (can use any battery orientation you want) so I don't use the carbon fiber battery cage pieces. The 2mm version of the frame is quite strong for what it is, but don't expect it to hold up like a Rooster. I take two identical quads to race because I almost always end up breaking an arm. Arms are cheap though, and In my opinion well worth the huge advantage this frame gives you.

Thanks for sharing! Is there any particular prop you can recommend for that setup? And another question, did you get a chance to fly it against 6S quads? I hear the message that you don't actually need 6S if you get the motors, props and weight right, but it kind of feels like 6S is becoming the new 4S, so I'm wondering.

I will have to try a frame like it for racing. it looks like propwash is a non issue with the way the arms are made.

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..
