This is the best 3'' quadcopter I've flown so far,

It all started when a similar setup on a lizard 180 frame running 4'' props started to show its weak points. The whole frame felt like flying a parachute and I didn't like the mounting options available, not to mention it was a frame from more or less the stone age.

That's when a friend of mine announced his new line if frames and he said he was doing a 3'' one and knowing how big of a micro fan I am he sent me one for testing. I couldn't be happier with it. It withstands crashes like a champ, is ultra light coming in at about 240 grams with a 4s 850mah, has super thin yet strong arms, it comes across as admire its sleek design.

The new vtx is amazing and I finally switched to a taranis Tx so I now have 0 range issues.

Also, the 3040 v1s props are the best 3'' props I've tried without a doubt: they're super smooth, fast and controllable. They also can take a beating (I have not change the props yet and they're only a bit scratched)

Thanks for your time :)

By the way red makes it faster so...

How do you like the AKK? I've seen a  lot of people have complaining about noise.

Mine works awesome. Haven't heard too many complaints about the fx3 specifically but yeah, crystal clear without capacitators or lc filters.

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..
