My go to. My daily flier. This thing continues to survive crash after crash on concrete. Have had so many comments on the punch. People are surprised when I say its a Chameleon. Not the most efficient setup, but I still get 2 minutes of freestyle with it, and enough power to get out of a pinch. I'm so impressed with the durability of these motors. I've tried s lot of props, but keep coming back to the 5152's for this setup. Take a close look at the esc's and you'll notice that I protect them with pieces of plastic water bottle to maintain that squeaky clean look. Thanks for looking = )

Wow that was a close one. Was that a random person walking there?

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..
