Hello fellow addicts, it's been less than a month since the last build but oh boy, here we go again :)

I have been getting into racing recently and I wanted to build myself a proper racer so I can join some of the local chapters and have some fun.
This time I began with a different idea than what came out but due to availability and urgency I had to restructure a bit. I ended up with this Mach R5 frame as a base
and a pretty standard 2207.5 1700kv motor with the idea of trying 6S this time. For the FC I chose the bigger version of the F722 MK2 Mamba with a 60A 128k 4 in 1 esc.
It's a stack I'm already familiar with and happy with so not much else in that choice. Im really glad this version also features a blackbox so I can finally get into that as well.
For the rest I just picked what I had lying around so - EP1 ELRS RX and a Run-Cam tx100 VTX as I don't really need much more for racing.
The camera is the same as my last build since I really enjoy the quality and light weight of the Ant lite.

Had its maiden flight today and overall I'm pretty happy with it. It's my first 5 inch and my first 6S so the shock was real in the beginning but luckily it's very controllable and I was able to calm down and tame it :)
It's early to talk about stats so I will add those in edits as I fly it more and tune it more but for now I am running a 1050mah 6S and it looks like I'll be hanging around the 3 - 5 min mark with it.

Hope you enjoy it, cheers!

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..
