This is a rebuild journey for the books! This QAV-R came to me with BetaFlight ready to fly, however, the quad is going to the homie in Texas, who wants all the bells and whistles like a DJI potato! So heres the scoop!

Eddie is the homie, suoer solid dood! He was asking for a 5" with RTH functiinality, ALT hold, mission planning, and all that jazz! Enter the Qav-R 2 that i have had sitting here, and the KwadKidz and i are on a journey to learn iNav!
The Qav-R 2 is holding the Foxeer F405 AIO, which was freshly flashed with iNav 5.1. The powertrain consists of the Gemfan Maverick ESC at 30a with BLHeli_32 and Hypertrain Grinder 2306 2450kv motors. For a 5", we'll have plenty of power!

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..
