ET5 Drak Canopy

My version of the Racer-X ET5 (Sub 250g). I made a custom canopy to better protect large lens camera like the Caddx Ratel or the Runcam Eagle Micro (Prints links in the Parts List). Normally I never put color or sticker on my Quads but it was funny to do it. With a 4S Tattu 750mah battery and the lucky box buzzer and the ESC LEDS it weight 245g.

Tell me what it's like, i'm so curious!!!!

sorry for the delay. I get hit by the covid19.   It's a rocket.   But the "balistic" is weird.  it is clearly not a 5".    It fly at the speed of light to the moon but it take so much time to go down.  I was flying around a empty soccer goal (european football) and I nearly hit the top bar of the goal every time because it was too floaty.     But it flip and turn like Speedy Gonzales.  I will need more flights.

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..
