Breaking out with a couple of superheroes over the next two weeks for my new build. Superman and Batman are on the way. Doubt I’ll get this guy done this weekend even though all the parts are here but got started tonight. Excited to get these two built and see how they fly.

Superman is done. Can’t believe how freakin light she is. AUW under 400g and I didn’t even use Uber light motors and I sleeved the wires to make it look nice and such. Haven’t had it in the air yet, gotta stop screwing around and study for finals but couldn’t wait anymore with all those parts hanging out lol.

I've been thinking about getting one of the EMax stacks for my next build, but I've heard that some have trouble with DSHOT600 and others have had problems with their VTXs. How's your's holding up, and would you recommend it?

Damn dude i havent logged in for 3 months so obviously this is way late, but the stack held up great. I've ran it on d shot 600 the entire time and it's been perfect. The vtx lost the led panel on top of it last week in a rather epic crash than bent all 4 standoffs at a 45* angle and required 1 motor, 2 arms, top plate, camera etc. VTX still works fine, just stuck on one channel now. i have no complaints at all with it though, i would definitely recommend it.

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..
