Rotor Riot Flow - Slammed Edition

This build is very advanced and was a HUGE challenge to get everything to fit in that tiny little deck, if you aren't an experienced builder buy the regular non slammed version of this frame :)

Update: I had to re route all of the wires to be under the flight controller to accommodate my battery strap

I have some 2408.5's on an LR, and I am guessing on a 5" they make for just about the most powerful thing you'll ever fly. They lift a Ti LR + Session and all the fixins like nothing. I was wondering where you went for your KV choice (because you are using 4S). I looked at all your pics, but it's always just outta view (Hey! I know it ends in "22"... lol). I, of course, went the lowest (1622), what did you select for this one? I am guessing not 1622. Thanks for sharing!

I'm flying the 2722 2207's on an ARX-R. I like them quite a bit. I'd love to sample PD's entire line... even the 1106's and 1103's.

Looks awesome. I admire you for going with the 4-in-1 ESC. I'm building one now and didn't even consider it. This thing is low. I designed a little spacer to take up the gap in the back of the GoPro mount on the slammed frame. Looks much better than having to crush the back of the mount down. Happy flying!

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..
