Continuing the Intrepid line of frames, we redesign the.... ermmm pretty much everything to turn it into a nice little 2.5 inch flyer. It has 2mm plates all around, unibody bottom plate with 9mm hole spacing. It's still rocking the top mount battery, compatible with toilet tank style. The camera cage is designed for regular micro camera, but you can use HD camera if wanted, no GoPro couch though.

This particular build sports a 20x20 mounting board for Unify Pro 5V and Crossfire Nano. It comes in at 106g with 1404 superman 4850kV running 460mah 4S battery. I get a solid 3-4 minutes out of that setup.

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

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..
