Twin Marmottes

I like my original 6s Marmotte so much I decided to build a clone. Now if I smash one up i'll have another ready to rock. I love this frame, being a squashed X it flies pretty much like my good old aliens. At first I was leary of the 20x20 stacks pushing 6s and running 2208's but so far they have held up fine.

So far so good with the stack. The Talon f7 and Gigawatt make for a easy and clean build. Thanks for the comment.

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..
