A light 3" cruiser I made in order to have maximal flight time with 2S li-ion 18650 VTC6 battery.
Turn out it's also pretty fun to fly with any 2S lipo too, light and has thrust.

I had to mount the FC upside down, took motor connectors off and had to cut canopy to access usb port.

3D-printable 20x20 stack to whoop board adapter I made for this frame: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3785413

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..
