The TransteC lightning frame has quickly become one of our favourite frames.
Its so light and fast, and easy to build.

This Build has had a couple of rebuilds, with myself settling on the Runcam Split, that way i wouldn't have to carry such a heavy Runcam 3 anymore and keep the all up build weight down.

The Carbon Kevlar doesn't cut so well on the CNC so it doesn't have that rounded look like the race arms, but WOW its strong so i chose the PRO for this particular build because of that. All titanium hardware that comes with the kit was a big bonus for me also.

When building this frame, we mixed and matched parts ~ so feel free to mix up your build.
The best combo with weight and thrust used the Gemfan or BBB motors. Both seemed to suit this frame really well with the best speed we could get out of it.

Props the windancers were great but you really cant surpass the Azure power props.
When choosing the FC, because of the short nature of the TransteC frames, make sure you use the stubby board.

The Stubby is the one that fits perfectly between the front and back posts without hitting the frame.
When doing assemble, be sure to make sure your soldering sits flush vertically not horizontally so the motor wires dont hit the frame.

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..
