This quad rips. Watch the latest where it is the chase cam.

Needed a freestyle drone for some dangerous missions. The Stingy V1 was hands down my favorite freestyle 5" frame. After I lost a few, it was time to build something fast as hell. Utilized the new 20x20 stack size on this frame with the HGLRC F440. Doubled down with the Multicopter Builders Primo 2207 2650kv. Not planning on using the 5150s, but they look great in photos so this is what she got.

How come it isn't one vertical and one horizontal?

Thank you for the explanation, FrenchB.

Currently, what you are accustomed to seeing are two independent antennas, that work to find the best signal independently of each other. This is common on most 2.4ghz radio control receivers, like the FrSky XM, XSR, etc.

The TBS Crossfire & the FrSky M9, both 916mhz band systems, use only one single antenna to receive the radio control signal.

At the moment it accepted as best practice to orient the antenna at an angle that is straight up and down when your craft is moving in forward flight. Ideally you want the antenna to have separation from the battery, gopro, or frame. My second version of this mount will be going out the back of the frame.

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..
