Frsky R9 converts to ELRS so easily! Oh, and JymmiPhreek is a badass printer! Hit the link below to contact him for any prints you need!

This is a 5" ImpulseRC Reverb. This actually was a pretty simple build, and feels extremely STOUT! This build was primarily a spare parts build. I had an "older" Hobbywing stack not being used, and felt it needed a home!

Updated to Betaflight 4.3 is the HobbyWing XRotor F4 G2 flight controller paired with the 45a 4in1 esc! Plenty of UARTs and plenty of power for what were running! Although discontinued, I really love the RDQ motors, they are damn smooth, and are very resilient in my opinion! These are the 2206 2450kV motors, the "naked bottoms"!

Following suit, I found a RDQ Mach3 vtx in my stash, so why not? 800mW, that not only will be adequate for penetration in urban proxy flying, yet strong enough also if i want to do some mid range mountain cruising or whatnot. With all of that video power, I needed to decide on a strong control link for sure. Enter the FrSky R9mini!

I have developed a strong dislike for FRSkY, however, I have fallen in love with ELRS and what it can do, so i flashed ALL of the R9 hardware i have with ELRs. I will NEVER go back! I think the 915mHz ElRs will be a great and reliable addition to thus setup!

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..
