Raggio Forever 🦅

I rebuilt my first real freestyle build back to its proper 5" form for a few reasons. I finally have a true Raggio Lungo build in the works for a 7" cruiser so I don't need to run this guy as a Velungo any more. The 4in1 plug started to fall apart and I used this as an excuse to upgrade from Helio Spring V2 & Tekko to my all time favorite stack, Radix & AK32. Another reason was curiosity about how differently Li-Ion packs would perform on a high Kv motor. All my miniquads have generally been between 1700 & 1900Kv, and the ol Ragu was running for a year or so on EMAX LS 2207 1900Kv, so the T-Motor Blackbird 2207 2725Kv was an obvious choice for comparison.

I also slightly redesigned the SMA/GPS mount with a extra TPU in a few places and 2 holes to allow easy installation of one or two VAS Mini 915 Antennas with a screw. The antenna can swivel slightly on top of already being very flexible. The Singularity matchstick with kevlar covered feeder should be pretty tough too, so hopefully this one will crash well. Hope to give it a flippy floppy flight soon! :)

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..
