Not sure how I feel about the build. I don't like how I have the vtx mounted, but don't see any other options at the moment. The pdb layout does not allow for things to be as clean as I'd like. It over all looks very similar to my alien....

07/29/16 update: This has been one of my all time favorite set ups! the EMAX 2205 motos with 30 amp littlebees has so much punch! And the KISS FC has this guy flying solid! Frame has held up for many crashes and does a great job protecting the components. I still wish it came with a better way to mount the TX and vtx like their other models.

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..
