Nice! Glad to see another hex fan on the site..

This is my first one and I have only test hovered it so far so we'll see how much of a fan I am. Regardless it was something new to try which is always fun.

Yeah I thought for a long time trying to think of an actual clever pun. In the end I couldn't come up with anything so I decided to got meta.

Wow, I haven't seen Goodluckbuy since my AP days playing with gimbals. What sort of flight times are you getting? How about some more photos? That photo is a little fuzzy.

I knew I wanted this frame and Goodluckbuy was the only place I could still find it. They're a little pricey but overall I was pleasantly surprised with my dealing with them.

Welcome to the site! I hope the site test went smooth! Yeah, GLB has never been competitive in terms of price, but they've always offered decent support.

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..
