My first build. A 5" tough as nails beast named Azureus (Blue Frog). I originally had 20A ESCs but later upgraded to 30A Spedix. I love the Spedix but found them to be extremely noisy on the VTX so I had to cram a Cap in the back, which helped some. I have put this build through pain and torture and SOOOO many prop changes. I feel sorry for it really.

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..
