This is my second build which took a lot longer than expected as I had a DOA ESC.
Wanted a smooth freestyle build, and after some recommendations went with the LS2206 2300KV and 5040 props.
Frame was an easy choice, saw some pictures of the Flowride, liked it and ordered it the same day.
Matek FC & VTX as they work great on my other build.
The Foxeer Arrow Micro V2 has a nice and clear image, only appears a bit dark compared to my other quads, need to look into that
Added a 3d printed AXII/XT60 mount for a clean mounting point for the connector and antenna.
Flies really smooth on 4s

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..
