I built this to take / test 5.5 inch props. It has replaced my source One HD for now but, based on my testing results, I may be switching back. If you've got any questions about the build, or my channel, just let me know. I put a TBS GPS on this rig so i could do long range test flights. On my 1100 CHNL 5S battery, I can fly for around 7 minutes (in the cold). What do you guys think about 5.5? Is it an improvement over 5 inch for Gopro carrying rigs?

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..
