I was looking to build a main freestyle rig. More premium parts than the first. I achieved it! I have had this for a couple of weeks putting it though its paces. I wanted something that was clean to build and all that acro power I wanted with a top mounted battery. The motors I went with because they were used by some pilots i look up to. Plus they were a killer price! Also smooth video is definitely important to me and as I can say now these motors are butter smooth for sure. The new BetaFlight F3 board I wanted to try out as I love all the features it offers. I also favor how active the developers are at improving it. Everything else on the kwad is top notch as well. Love the way this thing flies! Super locked in and very centered. Also incredibly durable at a weight that isn't terrible as its pretty close to all the other 220+ frames with individual replaceable arms. Please let me know what you think or if you think I could improve it in some way. This is my second build.

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..
