finished and flew this before xmas.... The RCX motors seemed to be decent for 3inch and potentially good for 4in props. I wanted to build a 130 sized frame. My pal has a Japolera frame and this sparrow was similar but more affordable. The ESC was available QUICKLY for a decent price, altho it has vbat out on the connector which fried my vtx03 bc i didnt fully think that connection through when i had it all set up... :/ fortunately that didnt fry my FC!! :D I might have liked a number of other esc's but i from banga'ru but i didnt want to wait another 2-3 weeks , the US location didnt have any 20x20... *144g without battery. *Flies really well, has plenty of punch. I was able to pullout of reverse powerloop! Might try some additional props soon. 2nd day out, broke an arm right at the end near the motor. :/ was able to poot around a lil still after 'straitening' out the damage, but then my new commander googles decided to quit on me (not the batteries). lame carbon on this frame is weak. right under 250g for all those lookin into a sub 250g build* I do NOT recomend this frame bc its weak and breaks

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..
