Hows the Runcam Hybrid working so far?

No issues so far. The FPV feed is clean (though it's 4:3, so my V1S stretches it). The colors seem saturated (reds and greens look super rich). I’ve heard it compared to the Nano2 (which I have in a toothpick build) and I’d say it’s close. I don't race, so can’t speak to latency, but it feels responsive. The HD video looks good, with good light handling (critical in NE fall/winter). I run it on 2.7K 60fps without issues. I haven’t experienced any jello with this cam (can’t say the same about my Foxeer Mix). I’ll try to upload some videos this weekend.

Sweet build, I really dig this classic alien-box frame style. Did you happen to weigh that frame? I can't find any numbers to compare it. Also how are the motors? They look great and I can't find much about them.

Thanks! 55g with TPU antenna mount and 25mm standoffs, but its tough AF. Haven't weighed it built (going to wait for the split camera).

The 1506s scream, especially 4300kv on 4s. They are notching as hell. So much so, HD video quality might suffer because of it.

Phew that's a big boy! About the same weight as the acrobrat but different format. I like the look of this frame more for sure. And yeah I don't know that there are any really good options for "smooth" motors right now. They all seem to be designed with racing in mind. I'm still shopping around.

Yeah, I've had a good experience with BQE and like the simple build. It has a ton of room (for a micro).

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..
