Since I started buiding drones I have been living in dense cities and never had the luxury to fly on wide open fields. So all I fly are 2-2.5in kwads. I enjoy the challenge of small parts and the soldering, even when I ruined a lot of parts by being bad at soldering.
Saw this frame from Avantquads on Nick Burns Youtube channel and fell in love. I already had quite a drawer full of 16mm electronics and was looking for a more rugged frame than my Bytesize's before. I don't like the shape of the whoop style AIO boards. They have their place, in whoops. Leave'em there! I also don't want to throw out 80$ because I blew a single ESC.

Anyway, Flywoo released some insane 16mm electronics in the last 4mo which I-had-to-buy!

My plan is to build 3 identical kwads to have always something reliable to fly when I get the chance. 1-2 additional frames will be for testing components, like motors or FC's. Have a Talon 16mm F& FC I bought before Flywoo released one with BlackBox. Eh. Also got some Fywoo Robo motors in which ask for abuse.

This is thing is already fast just sitting on my bench!

i love these little 2-2.5 inch builds. even with space to fly i still prefer these. theyre so much easier you know? you can fly it anywher, no one is scared of them, and the electronics are just as good as 5 inch. my go to is very similar to this one except i top mounted my battery and i like that much better. id tive it a try!

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..
