2nd bl micro ever. (designed built and flown within 12 hours of the last, send help) complete overkill of a frame. I'd be happy putting this canopy on a heavy 5 inch racer, that's how much of a strongboi he is. sadly the canopy weighs about 8g (very very sad) so I'll design another canopy some other time which is lighter. I also may have found the ultimate way to mount a receiver but what do you guys think? it also looks like an egg and or alien so that's neat

I think second season is done, ye but I havent watched it, manga lol
And I am designing one with more braces but the idea with that one is to have a more 3d frame with angled toothpicks which are thinner bc that sounds like a lot stronger of a structure. yeah, I saw your chopsticks posts, love them! how are you finding them? tbh I dont know much about bl micros yet, im just learning

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..
