I'm trying to find the best solution for long-range adventures. Long flight time and smooth flight with no vibrations. This build is based on the Rotorama Samurai V2 frame. It has custom arms for 6" props. The low weight is the way how to achieve long flight time and the 6" propellers produce significantly less vibrations than the 7". The drone without the battery weighs of 297 grams. There are quite large motors. After some testing, I might replace them with 2205 or even 2204 in order to save a few grams.

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..
