Got the build finished finally! Had a mishap along the way thanks to grabbing the esc cable from the wrong flight controller. Noob mistake cost me a FC and 4-in-1. I managed to repair the flight controller by replacing the main MCU. Should be able maiden this week once the weather clears up.

Hey man, we chatted on YT about how you broke an arm right away on this, and just saw Oscar Liangs build write up, looks like you might have mounted your arms different than recommended, maybe the cause of your easy break. ;) they mount either way, 1 way is for bottom mount strap.

Also looking at it, looks like they realized their issue, the design has changed significantly since the version I have.

ah yeah those Xing are really nice. i did just publish the review on the Eco as well, I dont think youll regret yiur choice. Eco are good for the price, but the Xing are a good deal more powerful. probably better for more experienced pilots.

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..

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..
