I had 2 purple and 1 silver 4" Armattan Japaluras and wanted one in a different color so I sent a set of purple braces to "Pig" on RCGroups and had them stripped and then anodized in blue. I removed the motors from one of the purple builds and replaced them with blue RotorGeeks 1407-4000kv motors. I also 3D printed a blue threaded HS1177 camera cases in PLA+ to complete the full blue look. It weighs 184.7 grams without a battery and it's a rocket with the 4000kv motors, 4S 1000mAh 70c graphene pack and the HQ 4X4.3X3 V1S props. The motors barely get warm during a hard, fast flight. With DAL T4045v2 props the motors get very hot in less than a minute so I wouldn't recommend them.

I'm extremely happy with how it turned out.

I've personally seen this quad and the pictures don't do it justice.

Great color coordination! How much did the anodizing cost?

Thank you very much. It was more or less a trade, I 3D printed a few items for him in exchange for the anodizing. I'm sending the purple braces that were on it to him to get anodized orange so I can replace the silver ones on another Japalura.

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..
