I saw that you had put your VTX antenna in the description although I was just wondering besides the crossfire what is the one that you have running in the back?

What's your flight time like?

Jeffmhopkins   Jun 24, 2019 

Completely depends on your thumbs.

I'll fly 60-65mph for 2 to 2.5 miles out and back with dual 2200 5S.

This is purpose for 2-3 miles outand back at a good clip.

did you cut the frame on your own? looks awesome

Jeffmhopkins   Jun 23, 2019 

The frame was cut at CNC Madness.

Looks like a great cut! Chamfered arms or did you do that by hand? Do they cut to order, as in single frames - or is there a minimum volume? Great videos btw.

These ones were chamfered by them.

You can do single frames. Join the Mid Range Mountain Surfers group on FB for more info. ;)

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..
