Garuda 200 is available now at Falcon Multirotors!

It's a Garuda with a DTFc! This build turned out really clean thanks to DTFc's integrated PDB. The Garuda VTX holder keeps the FX799T on top of the FC for each access to change channels. Equipped with 28 LEDs, it can put on a pretty good show:

Whats the weight on this?

lazd   Aug 30, 2016 

This particular build weighs 300g dry, but that's with the 3mm bottom plate. The frame weight for the 4mm with canopy and hardware is 110g, so a typical build would end up in the 320g range.

We have a race canopy that weighs 17g less, and the 3mm plate weighs 17g less as well, so I have a Garuda that has a dry weight of 286g with those parts.

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..
