My first build .. my first 5" quad. Prior to this, I first flew FPVs on a Tiny Whoop, then went to a Vortex 150. And since I knew I'll be doing some serious crashes while still learning freestyle tricks, I opted to first build this Shiv. Absolutely glad I did cause I've taken some pretty good hits on this.

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..
