Hoverbot Nano is 90mm, has tons of power, and is hilariously fun! At only 41g with prop guards, this build is so powerful and nimble you'll forget it fits in your hand.

This isn't too intimidating to fly indoors?

So a tad more power than a whoop, but not as intimidating as a 3".

"A tad" doesn't cover it. It's enormously faster than a whoop.
This is my first outdoor flight, taking it very easy, with a mostly dead battery as I didn't have a charger yet. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eI85qxhPWM&t=6s

Dude! Is that a Nissan Pulsar? That was my first car in the late '90s. I liked that car a lot.

Hi. Where did you power the camera from? The VTX voltage seems to be direct from the bat but just filtered on the FC. Thanks!

Does the board have a connector specifically for those batteries?

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..
