Recently saw a review of the Skystars Star-Lord BnF quad but really all I wanted was the frame as it looked like it was good quality. So after much searching, this was about 2 months ago, I finally found it and ordered one and it really is a quality frame.

Here are all the original Squirt v2 files from Andy Shen. You will need to get the arm guards here. It is the round tips that are on the end of each arm.

Here are all the original Slammed Squirt from Chris Teal:

These are my Remixed files and custom stuff:

Here are the different combo of ducts I modified from Chris Teal's slammed squirt. Read the description to help choose the duct that best fit the motors you are using. I think I will need to add more info because it did not occur to me until recently that most people do not have a sample ducts to get the measurements to assist them on picking the correct size duct.

Good luck with your build! Let me know if you have any questions.

I am looking forward to its build and will there be other builds?

I thought the same thing when I saw it, does it fit the mini cam?

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..
