With all the hype with Toothpick and TP3 and then likes, we took a hard look at the design philosophy around these frames and decided that we wanted to make something different. There are several shortcomings with the Toothpick frame design that we aim to address with the AirBlade EX.

The AirBlade EX essentially borrows the design elements from the original AirBlade Eclair. Follow our blog for full details of what we aim to achieve with the AirBlade EX https://www.airbladeuav.com/blogs/how-to-drone-series/airblade-ex-frame-kit-the-only-ultralight-micro-you-need

Will the Zeus AIO fit? And when can i buy? :)

it can only accommodate 26x26 and 16x16, you can check out our regular airblade eclair for 20x20 stack

Oh, I love my Eclaire (R3 1106's)! This looks like another great build to put in my queue for the winter!

Thanks! We have a lot of cool stuff coming for it as well

Very interesting roll cage. One thing it might be nice to have in the future: a spot to zip tie the vtx to the frame so it can be used for a heat sink.

We're working on several ideas actually. The original Eclair has 3D printed parts we call the backpack to hold the vtx and antenna, so we could do something like that for this. Otherwise, TinyLeds also has a mounting board for VTX (pro32 nano specifically) in the 26x26 form factor

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..
