Vertigo VX5 Fame from iFlight it is solid like a tank but also very heavy. My only real concern is how close the props come to the main body.

hi, nice quad ;) I'm interested about your propeller on photo, its written azure but which one? its ok with your 35a burst esc?

Thanks! unfortunately this frame didnt work out too well. the props would strike the main body due to proximity/clearance. i wound up having to use iflight nazgul T5061 props to get it to fly.

tried a 5042 prop which had a bit more clearance but when i started a power loop and pitched up the blades contacted the frame and this was the result.

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..
