The Falcon Multirotors Bullshark is shipping now! Get yours for only $25!

Bullshark is one of the first 2.5" capable frames that supports the CCD RunCam Micro. With a 50° stretch-x layout and a proper camera, Bullshark is both small and capable, and managed to take 1st place at the MultiGP IO Micro track with Phreakin FPV at the controls.

This build was fun and came together really quick thanks to the XJB stack's simple wiring layout. I even managed to sandwich 3 programmable WS2812 LEDs into the build that line up with the snap/screw in shark fin.

lazd, loving the looks of the bullshark. I have been looking for the ultimate lightweight frame to run some Rotorx 1107's with a Hglrc 428 stack or a zeus on gemfan 2540's. Do you think this combo will work with the bullshark?

Hey doc, we went with 2" for the production Bullsharks since there were no compelling 2.5" props at the time. I can cut you a 2.5" Bullshark if you like, and we could go with 25mm standoffs so the HGLRC stack fits with the VTX with room to spare. WDYT?

Thanks for the reply Lazd. I have been following all the falcon stuff and it all looks sweet. the bullshark with 2.5 or 3in would be compelling. I think i'm getting away from the 2in micros and like some superlight 2.5- 3in builds. I've got a 3in with 1304's that comes in at 90g AUW and is currently my fav micro.

So are you looking to run 1304s on 1107s? I will whip a 2.5" Bullshark up for you.

If you're thinking about 3" for racing, the Featherlight 3 may be a good option, as it has replaceable arms. Any thoughts on that frame? I can also do a 3" Bullshark if you prefer to try that, but we may have to up carbon thickness to 3mm (as we did on Splitshark after crash testing)

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..
