raptor EVO hybrid

finally after some postal issues got my 'EVO' alloy midpaltes for the raptor airframes... these things came out really nice and i got all the dimensions spot on.. the benefits of these plates is around 5g over all weight saved thanks to the shorter bolts and lack of press-nuts, a slight gain in stiffness and the new centre peg locks up the arms really solidly.. a proper one bolt system with a super quick arm change system that doesn't disturb the stack or the rest of the airframe. flying wise it has a slightly lower noise floor but other than the sexy factor it feels much the same in the air.. of course the new arms are backwards compatible with older versions of the airframe, my fleet is all using the 'mild hybrid config with 5" SX arms in front and 5" true X, really like the way they turn but it could totally be placebo effect..
lastly this was my last conversion to 6s for the racing session ahead.. no more 4s for me

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..
