In my opinion, this is a perfect small park flier. It's safe, quiet, quick, and gets good flight time. I've been using 300mah 2s RDQ lipos and easily fly for 5 minutes. The Pickle frame is 2mm and weighs less than 5g. I rotated the fc to have the USB pointing out the back for easy access. The gemfan props are good and the 1102 motors don't struggle to spin them since the AUW is light. The only draw back of this little guy may be the 1mm motors shafts. I haven't crashed so I don't know how durable the 1mm shafts are.

random DVR of it cruising around the front yard.

Nice build. Random question as another toothpick builder, but can you take off out of grass? My 1S cannot for the life of it take off if I land it in the lawn.

i didnt land this in grass, but i assume it wouldn't. my 2s toothpick struggles sometimes to get out of grass. there just isnt enough clearance for the props being so low to the ground that it usually get caught and flips over

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..
