Here is a Tinyhawk 3 inch I built using Quad 66 Skyryder 120 frame that he redesigned for me as a hot swap for the Tinyhawk 2 Race BNF. Its is a complete swap all you need to do is change out the motors from the Emax 3 hole mounted motors to any 4 hole mounted motors. I did add larger M2 jelly between frame and FC. However all that is really needed to make a TH2 Race into a 3 inch ripper is a motor swap the Quad 66 Frame and of course 3 inch props. Everything else below I added were extra upgades that were done after the quad was in the air with suprising performace increase.

I used a tinyled's tinyhawk sled that allowed me to swap out the built in Emax VTX and SPI RX with a TBS Pro32Nano VTX and Crossfire Nano RX with Mini Immortal T antenna giving it much more range and penetration with 500mw output and Crossfire. I also updated the camera to a Runcam Nano 4 and an XT30 power connector.

All in all this is a wonderful 3inch which fits between a Babytooth and a TP3 yet is an easy build as it is almost a complete swap for the Tinyhawk 2 Race and lets pilots upgrade as they go from the 2" Race all the way to 3" Full TBS build while being flyable between the upgrades!

I mainly run this on bi-blades not tri-blades

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..
