Armattan Japalura 3" frame and pdb, RF revolt running RF1 32/32/multishot , with Rotorgeeks 1407 4000kv motors and some cicada bb2 20a escs. Build was a breeze. The Japalura has a good bunch of real estate. Setup was very simple and it was in the air in no time and flies pretty nice but I learned RF isn't for me. I much prefer and am more comfortable with BF but that's just my opinion. Sweet little ride though anyway!
Update: switched the triumph for a lumenier ax11 antennae.

I decide on CNHL 5S.These are just as good as Bonka's and Pulse race series.Really happy with performance and price.I live in Midland btw.

How are you liking the True C,and have you used any other lipo brands to compare it to?..

I have everything for 5S build minus the lipos.Seeing I am in Canada I was going to give the True C packs a try?

Thanks for any infos and really nice build btw.

Thank you! I only have the one true c 4s battery so I don't think I can answer that properly. I can say my friends ALL fly them and they ONLY fly them(i flythunder power(so I know which ones are mine!). I Used to fly tatoos but found they were way too hot when they came down. The "95c" was a bit better but still pretty hot compared to the TP adrenaline line. Since all my buddies rip the true c pretty hard I have to assume they are decent, I have a bunch of their 1s lipos for my kids quad(which I tend to torture a lot lol) and they are far better than a number of others I've tried. Where in Canada are you? I live near Toronto.

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..
