Storm Drome - Sirio X2 (Canopy Version)

A 2" frame from Storm Drone named Sirio X2, but instead of the carbon top plate, I added their color canopy option, and rubber arm ends. This is strictly a LoS setup for indoor troublemaking, so no VTx on that RunCam. It's just a dummy cam to fill an otherwise void in the front of the canopy. My Sirio X2 build is specifically for making indoor trouble for my two cats, and my poor wife. I set it up with 1306-3100kv motors by DYS, instead of going with a more indoor friendly motor size like 0705, or 1103-1105. I can take it outside, to fly on my back deck no problem when I feel like it, but terrorizing my household is the craft's main duty, so the red is certainly proper.

It's a nice setup, the ESCs might be marginally overworked pushing 1306's, but after two months of off and on indoor harassment, and back deck trick-o-thons, the little Sirio is still going as strong as it's maiden, with no electro-failures or loss of craft sections. It still outruns the wife's attempts to completely destroy it. Indoor LoS flying is really challenging, and following domestic cats always difficult since they are spry little $#^+$ and can run under and between things so fast. Looking for a divorce? Get a Sirio X2 and overpower it indoors to terrorize everyone.

(My wife is the coolest person I know, and I love her more than anything. She really puts up with a lot, and has always supported me and my many hobbies)

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..
