When my V2 RotorX Atom broke (frame cracked at an arm) I was looking for a replacement that was capable of carrying HD video. At the time, I had no GoPro Session's and there weren't a whole lot of options for a 3in build that could carry HD footage. I had seen the original Runcam Split, but the conclusion was that it was garbage. About that same time the V2 split came out and it solved a lot of the complaints from the V1, and I also heard about a frame called the Split Shark from Falcon Multirotors. This is an excellent little frame, and I've had a lot of fun flying it. Here are some videos that I put together with the split shark!

No jello! How? One of the smoothest 3" video I have seen! Nicely done! 👍

Those videos were done before i put the TPU canopy on. I did that to get more camera tilt, but it caused there to be a lot of vibration and rolling shutter. With the camera hard-mounted it was pretty unsusceptible to jello. A good tune helps too ;-)

That's the problem with the split cameras and 3" drones. Anything could make video crappy. And then you have to have a good tune! 🙄 Who's got time for that! 😁

Thanks bud! I need to get it back out - been down with the FC/ESC being wonky.

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..
