Though I had been building large AP/Filming multirotors since around 2006 Nich Zuhoski and Paul Madere were the ones who really got me into the mini quads. Thought I'd post a little tribute quad to them here. Talon frame with "Dad Air" motors. :) Thanks you two!

Do 2307 2522kv motors do damage to your batteries?

I have a set of 2306 2500kv motors that will puff a low c rating battery on Hulkies, or Avan S bi-blades. I wonder if that's just the batteries (I have no problems with my china hobby line 100c packs though), so I figured if the larger motors were doing damage you would know. It sounds like you are telling me that it was just the cheap batteries, and I can just go nuts with motors!

No doubt a high pitched prop at 2500kv can puff a battery.... Ive had some brands puff on the first flight with a low pitch prop also... depending on how hard one flies and how low you take a lipo down any battery can be destroyed in one flight nomatter the brand.

I have gotten conservative with my landing voltage, just in case one of the cells is low unexpectedly. Thanks for the feedback :)

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..
