Summer is leaving and winter season is coming quick. Sometimes 2S just isn’t enough. Here’s a 2.5”-3” Doberman mini using all the new stuff from RunCam and EMax.

Using the Emax F3 Magnum Mini and the RunCam Swift Micro with Piggyback VTX made this build really fast.
I chose a 3-4s machine with 1106 4500kv motors because I wanted to fly this outside as well as in gyms or indoor arenas.

Using a 450mah 4S, you can either top or bottom mount. You decide.

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..
