This is my 2nd Rakon Heli Brushless tiny whoop build; but sporting 12000kv for some 2s power! The build wasn’t too tricky but soldering small is definitely a feat on its own. This version also sports a functional OSD.

Both my whoops fly amazingly well, and with the added power of 2s for Lightning; I get better outdoor performance.

In the future, I will be replacing the canopy.

Looking good! Did you drill out those TBS x TW props? The packaging says there's a 1mm hub version but haven't seen on the market yet. I've built a whole bunch with that same frame and 0703/05 from different manufacturers and sadly, not too happy. Very inefficient. Good thing is that the smaller motors are coming that are testing well with 31mm props. Can't wait! Brushless Whoops are going to take off in 18 IMO.

It spins when you turn it, it’s manual operated :)

Awesome build! I’ve been dying to build one of these.

Thanks, and I agree! Brushed tiny whoops are still great and all, but there’s much more precision with brushless ones. I

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..
