I love the sound of a hex in the morning...

I decided to build another three-inch frame, but this time I used 1407 motors and the Foxeers micro camera with built-in OSD.
I really like how it turned out and I'm looking forward to ripping it up at the local park with this little beast.

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 a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
