Catalyst Machineworks Merica: the finest racecraft ever manufactured. Never have I experienced incredibly fast speeds as smooth as freestyle builds. Wow. All of the great stuff people are saying about this frame is dead on. The Multicopter Builders Primo 2207 2650kv are super efficient for their power too; you can easily run them for 4 minutes on regular flying and well over 2 minutes when hauling it. The Azure props are super smooth and have incredible acceleration. This is by far my favorite setup for racing I’ve ever flown.

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..
