I decided to log most of my custom build on RotorBuilds finally, so I will be sharing them day by day until I'm caught up currently. This was my very first custom 5" build in January 2019 (just 2 months into the hobby). I got most of the new parts from a few friends in texas for half the price at retailers and some parts and for free too! I have many pics and videos of this build but I will only post a few below. Also about a month in I added and fully maxed out with LED's as well as GPS. This build went actually smooth for my first build and to this day (Oct.2020 is one of my favorites to fly of the 8+ quads/whoops). I have over 1000 flights on this quad and crashed hard, even head on crash and only broke top plate and stand-offs, and ruined a vtx and gps, it's pretty amazing considered the number of flights and I fly pretty hard with this quad. I love flying this without a GoPro, because its very fast on 4s and I can hit 101mph! Below I will list everything on this (original build, of course I have upgraded antennas since then and reciever too) . Also on the global gear section I will list what I originally used with this quad (not what I currently own and use). Below is my video of this quad doing 101mph on a 4s 1300 CNHL G+ Battery

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..
