AOS 5- on the bleeding edge

This is mathematically the best frame in 5" FPV currently. I built it up to be the best for me, especially for following cars. The 5226 props really make the weight melt away, and the 25mm motors have a ton of power and insane low-throttle smoothness. Currently running only d term low pass filtering, even then it's a single PT1 with a cutoff of 150hz. Minimal Phase Delay. I did grease the arm connections, and I was able to hit 2.0 on the master slider but backed it down to 1.8 to allow some room for damaged props and or debris. I was able to fly back from a crash with one corner only having 2/3 blades, the motors were absolutely toasty but it made it home ok.

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.
