When Andy and Gab first let me see this beast I was at a loss for words...

You can follow along with the conception and then evolution of this platform from Hevi to Thicc here: Shendrones.com/HeviThicc

Building a Thicc can be a overwhelming experience even for those that have built their own drones before. We have built 7 so far and worked directly with Robert Moss, and Betaflight contributing developers Mark Spatz and Chris Thompson on tuning it to afford pilots to carry payloads up to 1.6kg and capture stunning full-frame camera content.

From carrying a 4k Black Magic Pocket, a multiple GoPro Live Streaming setup, or even up to a ZCam with full lens, Thicc can carry just about anything you need to get those shots in major motion pictures and broadcasts. We have added all kinds of options from the Entire R2 Camera controller to direct power regulation for removing batteries from those giant cameras.

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..
