the xlabs shrike style is still one of my favorite frames to fly. The braap just made sense as an upgrade and I must say, I do love the way it turned out.

If rotorbuilds had a build of the week, this would be it brother. How do you like the frame? Is it quick and sturdy as it looks?

Also are you using this thing for freestyle or racing? Which do you think it’s better at?

I like the frame, I was skeptical at first because of how the battery was mounted on top but I don't really feel a difference in flight. It is snappy, not sure about durability yet only time will tell. I use this rig for freestyle because I am no good at racing and enjoy free flight more than anything else.

Get a flight sim first. Spend $20 on velocidrone by Team Black Sheep and save your self hundreds of crashes and dollars and time. It’s the best $20 I’ve ever invested and even though I fly dozens of packs a day every day, I still use velocidrone daily before trying new tricks in real life. I couldn’t reccomend velocidrone enough because it feels soooo close to the real thing.

Hey man I would recommend not using those rubber bobbins for soft mounting and using a long bolt that goes through the whole stack with spacers. In a hard crash the bobbins will cause the FC to move and the connector or pins will be ripped off the esc or flight controller and you will have to use wire instead. Otherwise very sexy build

good call sir, I was hustlin trying to find hardware but I've got some stuff on order to replace the bobbins now.

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..
