This a yet to be released frame from Rotorious FPV called the CB122. Superfly FPV designed himself a mini Alien clone, and people cried over him not doing one for everyone........

So he decided to change up the dimensions, so it was not a clone and start with 5 prototypes for 4 lucky testers and himself. John intends this to be a 2s MultiGP racer, with no local MultiGp chapter I decided to make a 4s mini basher with 1304 and the biggest tri blade I could fit on a frame originally designed for 66 mm props. The frame itself will have 2 20x20 mount option for both m2 and m3 FC/stack option. I highly suggest if your using M3 just to drill out the M2 hole though, especially with Bobbins

So as you can see my build list started with a Piko BLX F4, this was my first time using this, and more flying will tell me what to think of it. I do know the support and knowledge isnt there yet, and binding spectrum though BF was impossible, and they managed to make harder to solder than the old board. Pluses are 8k/8k run silly smooth, and this quad is running D shot 600 with out any funny business of running D shot on 300 on the old Piko. The FC is soft mounted with some Pryodrone Bobbins.

The ESC are massive overkill for this build but are not expensive and run D shot 600, Speedix 30a have been super reliable for me, so I doubt I ll ever have to change out an ESC.

The video system is the ever popular Runcam Micro +VTX03 combo super easy, light, works well, 50 channels. CCD set up. Make my older AIO set up look so blurry. My only complaint is there no 1.8 lens option for the Runcam Micro Swift yet.

Overall its the best look quad I have built. Its super smooth, quick enough, should take a beating, and has that floating feeling of larger quad.

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..
