This build started because I had a couple 5s laying around that I wanted to play with. That pointed me towards this 6s capable build. My goal was to have enough power to punch out to the top of the mountain next to my house. Just about does it!

I had to modify the frame to get 5 inch props to fit well with a high stator(Dremel). The 405 is a bit finicky and I had to soft mount it. It rips a hole in space time when it whips by. So far 5s is nice, but damn does this thing whip on 6s. Go to power loop a tree and you end up the next town over.

In the end I would rather of gone with the good ole, MPU6000 and a real frame instead of this cheap shit. When it crashes(hopefully in glorious destruction) I can swap it out.

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..
