Naga 3 - the smollest 3" quad

Originally designed as a 2.5" with propguards, I realised that without them 3" props would just fit with a couple of mm clearance from each other and the stack. Diagonal motor to motor distance is 110mm, making this just about as small as you can make a 3" build without vertically staggering the motors - actual distance between motor centres on the short edges is just 3 1/16"!

Only given it a quick test flight but it feels very nimble and surprisingly quick!

Holy hecc so seccy. Are you selling the frame or releasing files?

Just weighed it, 124g with a 450mah 3s pack. Thinking of picking up some 750mah to try too, should be enough to see me through 2 minute heats :)

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..
