My first self-build. Tarted up with Sharpie pens. Comes in at 248g with battery. So far been great to throw in my bag and take out to some interesting locations. Unfortunately THuG have stopped producing this frame.

oh my god this looks amazing! any difference flying a low rider frame compared to h or x frames?

Ha! I just noticed, it was your 'purple rain' that inspired the colour scheme for this quad!

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..
