I was very surprise to see the final weight of this setup to be 182 grams. That is the same weight as my MRM Micro Scythe 130mm. I assumed the 160mm Reaper would weigh more because of the RunCam Split camera, larger frame and motors.

I always wanted to record HD videos with my smaller 3 inch frames but it wasn't worth the added weight. Sure, I can add a GoPro Session but the performance and flight times will suffer. As you can see with this build I'm able to record HD videos with the new Runcam Split and yet it still only weighs 182 grams. It's not the lightest setup but I am happy with the outcome.

The one major drawback with this camera is the props being in view while recording in HD because the camera is mounted so s low.

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..
