My favorite quad so far.
Sharp as hell 2S toothpick which survived a few reincarnations. Used it with hdzero whoop VTX mostly, also tried to fit AKK diversity (failed) and ended up with TBS nano. Nano known as a pain in the back as it requires pull-up resistor to be on the FC`s pin otherwise it should be soldered between GND and SA. Found suitable resistor in my electronic stuff box accidentally.

HGLRC Petrel 120X 3 Inches Toothpick FPV Frame is my favorite durable and light frame.
BETAFPV 1-2S F4 PRO 12A v2.2 FC: AIO is ok, and I appreciate the ability to plug in the USB-c adaptor.
RCINPOWER GTS V2 1202.5 Plus 6000KV Motors feel under-RCINPOWERed and acrobatic are not their forte; however, it flies for 7-10 mins, and control is perfect for a novice.
TBS Unify Pro Nano 5G8 VTX has a small transmission range but it's also small and lightweight itself.
Tried Readytosky B14 nano camera but it was a disaster. Ended up with CADDXFPV Ant Camera which is good, and the weight is fine for this size.
Gemfan Hurricane 2512 3 Props may lack durability - they are very easy-to-destroy props.

The weight is 52 grams.

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..
