Screech hypetrain

The original plan was to come up with a light weight freestyle build. this would be the third quad i have built so i wanted to perfect some of the things i wish i had done differently on my previous two builds.

the platform.. the strix screech frame came up because it is a frame at 99 grams with enough space to fit what i want. with most freestyle frames coming in at well over 100 grams i thought this was a good light weight fit. the chamfered edges are a nice touch and i sealed those up with glue and black nail polish. i topped it off with the gopro mount to match.

i am a quality over quantity type person but more so a person that appreciates value. the following parts where purchased because i got some sort of coupon or giftcard for them or see a quality to them that makes them superior.

i wanted to try a 2207 motor and the hyprtrain acro fits that bill. when rotor riot ran a flash sale and had them greatly discounted i purchased them. i soft mounted those motors. then the joshua bardwell fc went on sale and i purchased that and his 32 bit esc to match. the new runcam eagle micro luminier version is light weight and has the built in remote which is a great feature and unparalled in my eyes. i opted for the mateksys vtx because of its abilty to be stacked right where i wanted and the mmcx connector. im using flysky so the x6b is almost identical in size with the vtx. i drilled holes in the back of the frame to stack these.

all together im very happy with the flight charecteristics of this quad. im using hq 5x5x3 to distribute the power to the air.

the goal was a clean lightweight build i could rely on and i think i have made that. my fear now is crashing it.

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..
