Holybro Cinewhoop 3"

Been wanting to get some really close proximity HD video, inside of trees or near other features. Here's a cinewhoop build. I have a pretty good inventory in the spares bin, so the only new part here is the Holybro frame. It's pretty easy to build with, plenty of room for standard components. I dig the XT60 print that came with it, I'll probably print some of my own for other builds. I put some new leads from a balance cable on my old set of T-Motor F20II 3750kv and they work fine, maybe a little hot in this heavy of a build. It sits at 266g dry, and AUW is 470g with 850mah 4s and Hero4 camera. I'm waiting on some duct-specific props from HQ and Gemfan to improve the efficiency, I've tried some old Racekraft 4-blade and 5-blade props, as well as the RotorX 3040 3-blades (which I love on my TF 3" racer still). Until then these old HQ 3040 props from an Intrepid 3" seem to work alright.

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..
