This is my current favorite frame to fly right now - my Falcon Multirotors Cinebarge. It’s a long range HD 7 inch frame with a big payload and long steady flight times. I tried my best to find amazon prime links for you guys, but some parts just weren’t available, like the gps unit, which you can get from GETfpv. It’s not required to enjoy this build, but with the newly added gps osd features on the dji goggles, it might be worth it.

With a 2200mah 6s, I’m able to get 7-8 minutes flight time cruising. I’ve done a few shoots from moving vehicles with this setup and have been amazed at how long I can hold a chase for. The tuning was tricky on 4.1 Betaflight, but with 4.2 now available it’s been a breeze. I have included my PIDs in the image below for you guys to try out.

The build time for this rig is about 1.5-2 hours depending on your skill level. The most annoying part will be extending the wires for the DJI FPV unit to the FC. Other than that, everything is pretty plug-n-play. These motors come with nice long wires, so you won’t have to extend anything.

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..
