This is the second version of my first hexa build. It's transformed to a gopro rig. It got new front camera mount combined with the gopro case, it's a TPU print to absorb the vibrations. I don't like the usual gopro mounts because it's hard take out, this one the camera slides in from the left and one M3 screw holds it. The "inner" case not tight, it's easy to change.
The other main change is a new longer top plate so it can carry a 3300mAh battery and the center of gravity still in the middle. Also got new motors this RCINPOWER GTS-V2 motors are strong and they are looks amazing.

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..
