Finally trying out crossfire. Lite module and diversity nano rx. Very nice! :)

Back to 7" cruising, messing with odd DIY Lithium Ion packs mostly. The flight footage below is using an 4S 6000 Liitokala 21700 cell pack, and the first time I went any sort of distance. I've also been enjoying punchier flights with the RDQ 5s 2200. These 6mm arms are giving me the best looking 7" HD footage I've managed so far. Still needs work but Jello is the least of my problems now.

Nice flight! I'm in the midst of a similar build. Source One 7", Avenger 2507 1750kV, either GemFan 7042 bi-blades or te 7040 tri-blades. Your flight gave me some confidence that the older TBS 25A ESCs i have will be up to the task. Any idea what sort of peak amps you get on a punch out with 5S packs?
Happy flying!

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..
