This is quad is powered purely on hype! All the latest stuff I could fit into one quad! It's super heavy though! 660g with GoPro and 4S battery, 700g with 5S. Wish it was a bit lighter.

Oh I see. So how do you like the Loki? I am tempted to get one because of the 6mm super slim arms and the weight. I have a 3 inch build using the Storm Sirio X3 frame and I really like it.

It is pretty good, though the 6mm makes it a bit heavy. I think maybe there are better frames for the same or less weight that are as durable, but so much of that is user preference. I like this one because if you work it right you can mount the battery on top.

What are your thoughts on that FC? Any advantage with having 2 gyros?

Could you show how you have connected the fc, pdb and escs because i'm planning a similar 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..
