Red XIII

This frame is built like a tank and is surprisingly easy to build. I cut off the pin connector on the Hobbywing esc which allowed me to slam the revolt with no components touching, leaving plenty of room for my strap to go through on top of the revolt. I could've opted to do a 10mm build but 4in1 escs just look so clean.

This build is flying really good so far running RaceflightOne 316 firmware, stock tune. No oscillations at all, just a few bobbles on hard flips/rolls I need to iron out once I decide exactly which battery I will be using.

I am loving the Efaw motors, they are incredibly smooth and provide plenty of power, even on a 4s 1300mah battery. Next up will be trying out some 5s and 6s batteries and ironing out the CG.

Hi. Awesome build. I'm busy building a 6 inch Hyperlow for long range at the moment. What's the dry weight on this?

It’s somewhere around 500 grams with a gopro I believe. Not the lightest with the big arms and efaws but you dont even notice it on 5s

Really clean build. What 3d Printed part are you using for the FPV cam?

Thank you! It’s the stock one, it comes with any of the modular freestyle frames from hyperlow.

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..
