Anyone ever consider making the "arms" into winglets? Was thinking that while this wouldn't generate lift per say, it would help to keep the carft stable at higher speeds. Could also help with hangtime as the copters winglets would "slow" its fall.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

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 a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
