I built my first Sybil frame 2 years ago. Its a very simple frame that is very crash resistant and cheap as they come right now. They are $15 at multirotor mania. 3d printed parts for an alien or martian fit it and match the standoffs. It comes with 35mm standoffs but if you use a micro cam you can easily get it down to 25mm like this. This was a pretty cheap build. I got the motors and esc's in trade for 3d prints. The frame was $15. The fpvcam, vtx and BFF3 were black friday deals. Im kinda bummed I dont have matching props. There is a pic below showing #1, #2 and soon to be #3. Notice how the arms can be moved so the quad is anywhere between 210mm and 255mm. Very cool feature if your building for racing or free style.

I still don't understand why these weren't more popular. it is almost the exact size and weight of an alien and just as tough. Definitely rip worthy

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..
