8s 1000mm X-class. This is a custom frame designed by one of my friends. I went with 700kv motors becuase I wanted some power, I got that. This thing screams and tares through the air. I get about 5 min flight time on full charge. The Foxeer antenta was origonaly just a place holder for a TBS Triumph Pro but I am getting really good quality video of of it, so I'm ganna leave it on. Without Lipos the weight is around 2100g. Do I recomend building this drone, No. You have to be willing to loose the money you put into building a quad this size. Eventually it will crash and break alot of things. Its great to take to a park and rip around and it looks awsome hanging on your wall but its not a every day flyer.

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..
