I originally built this quad back in Nov 2019, the year I got into FPV, and just recently revampted, cleaning it up and updating parts. This is my Analog Long Range Quad. I don't plan to take this quad much farther then a mile, maybe two. The original design flew pretty amazing with a lot of power, so this should fly better. I created a lot of custom TPU parts, VTX holder for the Unify Pro32, a new Antenna/GPS holder, remixed Front Bumper, and a new Camera Case and Mount, that I still need to test out. All in all, I'm very happy with this upgrade. Will post video once I have time to fly.

Upgrades left to do... Swap out the FPV Camera for a T-Rex. The video quality has been really nice and a big upgrade. Looking at upgrading the motors with T-Motor F90s. Last, clean up the wires.

It flies pretty well. However, I've since updated the build to use HD Zero and ExpressLRS. I'm pretty happy with it.

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..
