She gone bro! Somewhere over Pine Mountain. The 5" Stingy frame was sitting on deck for backup parts for my FALCOR.230 Stingy 6" build. When Falcor went for a swim and was deemed irrecoverable, the 5" frame was pushed to the spotlight. Using group buy parts and a backup set of Silks, the party drone was assembled as a backup rig during a drone road trip. When the 7" Raggio went down in a crash, the 5" Stingy stepped up and took control of the road trip. She even bagged chase footage of pro PPG Troy Keys threading the Corona Arch. What a trip!

Here is the epic video!

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!

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