LEACO FlosStyle is My seventh, built as a freestyle rig initially, but slowly converted into a mid/long-range cruiser. Runs on 6S, really love flying this quad, I had issues with propwash, I try change pids but not usue. Finally I try raight props (Gemfan flash 5149-3) and all problems with propwash disappeared. I cannot rule out this possibility that I try other props. I also mount Frysky R9 module and Im still not pleased with range.

I LOVE the gold props, and I dig the red accessory color scheme. What made you end up hanging your fpv cam out the front like that? I tried to see if you had something in the space where it should go, but I couldn't get a good view. Is it to keep the gopro mount out of view while you are flying?

As you know I have runcam micro eagle and the frame is clone of floss style so there wasn't enough space for the fpv cam. I cant change freely an angel. The frame is just too tight. I try many cam mounts and this one was the best as a protection and I can easy change cam angel. Soon I place video, so you see that gopro mount is out of range there is clear field of view.

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..
