The Long Range Kraken

The Kraken is a 396mm stretched X frame, running 10inch CF props. It was built to be my longest range quad, and so far it has been doing well at that. I have reached 8.2km with her, and have plans to ultimately reach 15Km. With 3inch pitch on the rotors(props), she doesn't bite the air too hard, but it will give me 20 minutes of flight time with a 6s/3700mAh battery flying at about 40mph. And it will reach out further with a 8000mAh battery. With 7 inch pitch rotors she really gets with the program.

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!
