Legend spoke of a frame...a frame that made race gates quiver in fear...a frame that destroyed everything without fear of damaging itself.

Basically, I broke an arm and figured I'd try to build a near unkillable quad. Recommendations all pointed to Ragg-e This was the outcome. I designed the camera mount, it was printed by 3D Stuff.

It flies like a tank! Very heavy, but quick on 2600kv motors. Bit drifty in the corners but the 5050c twinblades helped a lot with that. It's also incredibly hungry on batteries - 150 seconds is enough to turn a 1400 4s into a red hot balloon.

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..
