I lost a TBS Source One 7" Long range build 2 miles out and was so hooked on the big 7" style and the way they flew that i had to build another one. This time I went with a Catalyst Machineworks BangGod 7" frame. I really like the look and strength of this frame. I do not take it apart very often though as it takes 18 screws just to remove the top plate. This thing flie like a glider. It just soars through the air without a care in the world. I get some pretty footage in many different mountain ranges with this guy. Fun build and really fun to fly.

I got the files off of Yeggi. Its a sight like thingiverse. I sent the STL files to Brain3d and he printed them for me. He's one of the best in the biz.Here is the link.

I'm certain that the thing that took the longest was cutting your Ummagrip in that pattern! I get annoyed and have trouble just getting it cut into a rectangle! What's your secret? I use an Exacto knife on a cutting board...

I use an Exacto as well. I also use scissors when I can. That stuff is hard to cut. It moves more than it cuts. No secret just a lot of patients lol.

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..
