The plug of the Foxeer Predator V4 Nano touches the FC slightly and limits the max camera angle. Need to fix this in the future.

The GPS isn't shipped yet. I'm planning to mount it on the battery strap.

UPDATE: GPS shipped but to big to mount it on the tiny tadpole. The stock linear antenna of the tbs unify pro32 is just fine. No need to replace it at this time.

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..
