6" Sköll V2

After 2 years of budget builds with knockoff frames and cheapo parts I decided to build something more primo. The goal is an efficient, durable, smooth flying, and future-proof freestyle quad. I've sourced all the parts from dealers who I trust and know if something is defective they'll make things right. I've decided to pair the Skoll with 6" arms and AokFly 2306 2400kv. That should allow me to run aggressive pitched 5" tri blades, moderately pitched 5.5 tries, or dual 6" blades. Sometimes 5" tries are too loud. It will be nice to switch to 6" dual blades if noise is a concern.

The max I'll spend on a motor is $15. For the most part, I don't think there enough of a quality and performance increase for motors above that amount. I don't doubt there may be some exceptions but for me, it's not enough to justify shelling out the extra cash. I think some of the T-Motor offerings and the ZMX FinX maybe an exception.

I used to think the same thing until I flew T-Motors and someone gifted me the Hypetrain motors, the difference to me is significant. By far those 2 motors are the smoothest I have ever flown with the best power to weigh ratio. I do agree I do not want to spend a lot period regardless of the component and there are a few I just won't buy after much research especially one particular motor which I won't name which purchases the magnets, bearings and winding material every other company turns away due to inferior quality. I have spent way too much time researching motors and not enough time flying but over the last 2 1/2 years I have learned there are certain components that just make my quad feel better. Give the Samguk motors a try they are $9.99 each and Stu said they blow Racerstar out of the water...oops I said it :)

Next time we fly I'll bring the Chameleon with the Hypetrain so you can fly it :)

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..
