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 is one of my favorite builds. It took me a while to build this do to painting all edges of the frame with dark-deep semi-glossy red nail polish, with 2 coats (I tried about 5 different brands to get the right one), word of the wise don't go cheap on nail polish because it will be watered down. I have many pictures of this build and will share a few, plus I have a maiden video which I actually posted about a month ago (It was supposed to post back in January lol). I also ended up crashing a few times and ruining the esc braid and took that all off and replaced with CL Racing motor LED's in red color on all 4 arms, which you will see in one picture below.

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..
