Here is my solution for a micro long range quad. This little ripper is quiet and fast with HD and well under 250g! This build is 130g before Lipo.

Hey Could you link the 3d print for this backpack? This is the eclair lite right? Good solution to fit the antenna and vtx there.

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.

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!

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
