This is a build for freestyle beast and a bit of long range. GPS gives a speed reading as well and top speed clocked in at 117 mph (without GoPro)!

Note: Even though the website for the GPS says it is ok to run on 5V, DO NOT. ONLY run it on 3.3V

Where the arms meet the body you will notice that it is very wide; much wider than the motor wires will take up. I will use this space and probably double sided tape it and maybe ziptie it there.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

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 a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
