So let me tell you a little story.... This one time, at a rock quarry during early morning golden hour, there was this nice little custom built Crux3. When out of NOWHERE, and i mean NOWHERE, came a large steel arrow sign! the Crux3 frame was no more, but the motors and internals were still usable! I searched and searched for what frame would hit my tastebuds like the crux3, and stumbled upon this little beauty!

The GepRC Phantom 2.5" frame is awesome! Inside i mounted the Mamba F4 AIO toothpick FC, and a Mamba TX/RX combo. I will be swapping to a Crossfire receiver as soon as i acquire one! For now the D16 Mamba will do. Wont be pushing long ranges, but at least i get to send it still!!

I added a 3d printed tail piece with an xt30 holder, rx antenna protection, and vtx antenna mount. Also 3d printed is the skids on the feet of course. All printed by the great JymmiPhreek of HellfireFPV. Be sure to check them out and him specifically on Youtube! https://youtube.com/channel/UCtCyuH6yjPqPsq0WmwYZ-vw

I was laughing reading the crux3 part. I have like 8 spare frames of these laying around. but after seeing the phantom frame I immediately knew this is going to be my next hit. Qurious tho as to how far you plan to go with this and the smallish lipos it can carry.

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..
