BandoSlayer 2
This is the third build in a series covering the frames from Detroit Multirotor. This frame, BandoSlayer 2, is an update to a very successful freestyle frame we introduced last year. I haven't quite finished this, but it's close enough to post. Still need to test motors and then appy heat to the shrink wrap on the ESCs. The upgrades to the frame include using Toray carbon Fiber throughout except for the non-conductive locking plate and it's a little longer, giving ample room for bigger batteries. I'm using the Joshua Bardwell board and I'm anxious to see how it flies. It did create one unforseen issue that I had to work around. No big deal though. I've posted a ton of pics that go through every step of the build. Hope you enjoy and thanks for viewing. Comments are welcome and appreciated. By the way, the first shipment of these under $70 frames sold out in a couple of days. Next shipment is due the week of March 10, so If you want to pre-order, hit us up at https://www.detroitmultirotor.com/collections/frames/products/the-bando-slayer-2

The Bardwell Board had a gizmo (that's the technical term) on the bottom that created a clearance issue with the center cinch nut. It was easily solved with some small washers from the motor hardware.

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..
