I liked how my previous 3" HD build turned out, but I felt that it needed a bit more power for carrying that heavy DJI Air Unit.
So I decided to build another 3" HD with 1408 motors and Caddx Vista (which is 20g lighter that DJI Air Unit).

This build turned out to be real rocket with those HQ props :+1: .

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..

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..
