Eachine Wizard "Carbon Rainbow"

Picked up a Wizard as a backup quad, it ended up being way more reliable than my first build so it got flown a lot. Lots of parts have been replaced over the past few months, so it's not really a Wizard any more!

Last major overhaul was after I crashed and lost a side plate, after that I decided to move the arms inboard (on top of the baseplate rather than under it). It flies like an absolute dream now, after spending a bit of time tuning. Not the fastest quad in the world, but the battery life is great (around 4 1/2 to 5 minutes) and it's pretty nice to work on, with loads of space in the frame. I fly with either a Mobius Mini or Hawkeye Firefly Q6, both in strap on 3D printed mounts.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

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..
