Did I lie about the Flair? Maybe. I was stoked about this build initially, but rarely find myself in a remote area to fly LR. However with the aquisition of the Stanfpv 2203 1500kv motors I have revisited the build. I swapped the receiver from crossfire to expressLRS on Ghost hardware. Other than that, it's pretty much the same build it's been since I first put it together. I liked the HQ T5x2x3 but durable is the wrong word for these props. They love to explode. For no reason. Fitting given my channel name, I suppose. If I fly 4s liion I have to use Pb&j props 5.1x3 if I fly 6s it's a bit more efficient to drop the pitch to 2.6.

This Rekon 5 runs a Matek flight controller and a T-motor esc that I happened to have lying around. I had tried the StanFPV 2203 1500kv motors on my 2Fiddy and it was ok, but they're much more suited to this build flying long range. And it flies for ages. I use all kinds of packs from my 1200/1250mah 6s, Flywoo 4s Liions and even 530mah 6s packs I use on the 2Fiddy.

I like how roomy the frame is, but I think I could go lighter with an AIO. I might migrate over to an airblade transformer frame I got, but for now, I'll Rekon.... Five.... 6s...

I have a few brass inserts that convert an m3 hole/silicone insert to m2 now. Untill I ordered the maytek 20x20 FC's that they came with, I had a real problem mounting boards with m3 holes to frames with all m2 holes. What did you end up doing?

I use the brass inserts that came with it. I inserted them from the top and have m2 lock nuts on top.

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..
