First quad - I wanted to build the Alien mostly because of the rotor riot videos. I wanted an OSD so I followed what Mr. Steele does.

I really like the Kiss FC/esc combo. If they included an OSD it would be perfect. Regarding the OSD, I'm not sold on the the PNP50. I don't need the filtered power because of the HV unify pro, so all it provides is the OSD and current draw. It's expensive and too big for just that purpose.

Other than that I switched to dal triblades because the HQ props are far too fragile for my ability level.

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..
