Hello world,

Some additional specs:
AUW 540grams
Gopro session 5
ND Filter
AHTECH Infinity 1500mah 14.8V


Can the everyday professional and freelancer videographer jump onboard the FPV wagon?

Being avid DJI-base drone users, the jump can be both nerve wrecking in exciting. This being said, the immersive experience with an FPV goggle can be a steep challenge to some.
Will the flight characteristic be the same as to what we are use too? NOPE.
Will the expensive builds be able to fund for themselves over the next couple of gigs? MAYBE.
How can I unleash the creativity of style that I yearn from after being stuck with drowsy slowmo cinematic aerial clips? WELCOME TO FLOW.
So many questions. Too many ideas.


Every build should have three critical criteria:

1 Abide by regulations set by authorities.
Every country has it's own drone laws. Under a certain altitude, above a certain weight and size and not to mention the permits.
As drone laws differ from country to country let's try not to touch on things that we cannot control but on aspects of each build that will fall within the country's regulations and laws. Regulations such as weigh classes, frequency bands etc etc.

2 Safety, Safety, Safety.

  • avoiding failsafe
  • telemetry and which telemetry is crucial
  • audio
  • GPS
  • propguards

3 Creativity. Flow.
The build should help with flow and not work against it. The correct choice of motors, propellers, PIDS, Gopro settings and dual cameras, 4k or 2.7k? Will 1080 be sufficient?

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..
