Hey guys I thought I'd take a moment to share some pics and progress of my most recent build. I am very pleased with this build for 2 reasons. 1st when getting into the hobby I came accross the Yeti and knew I had to have it but also knew it was way outa my league at the time, and the second reason is simply because I finally got it for my Birthday!!
I really enjoyed putting this beast together. I did have to look for a diagram but it wasn't too hard to find on the web.
I chose to go with the Radix 2 fc and radix 2 pb stack as it looks amazing and I'm a big fan of Brainfpv. Due to its design, I knew It may be a tight fit but I was determined to make it fit and in the end had to shave off a little around the edges to keep the pb from touching the arms.
Here's where you can follow the progress.

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..
