Anyone still interested in tinyhawk mods? Wanna try one that actually makes a difference instead of just wasting more power?

Here ya go.

Get an X-acto knife and 1.5-2mm carbon, lose 6g. You gain ALOT of speed (I can easily pace cars going ~30-35mph). The increase in speed is audible. And if you don't fly like a bat out of hell you'll even pick up another 30-45s flight time.

I'll have DVR in a couple days when I've got time.

Do you have some DVR? i'd like to see, thanks! looks like an awsome mod to do.

I would. If EMAX hadn't sent me replacement board with a defective voltage regulator. It was a great mod, required surprisingly minimal re-tuning. But I'll be selling off what I still have in TH parts and building a Toothpick soon. Heck, you can just buy the frame a some carbon parts from me if you want XD I won't be needing them.

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..
