Catalyst Machineworks BangGOD

I originally bought the electronics for the ImpulseRC Apex frame, but after several hours of trying to get everything to fit to my liking in that frame I decided to move everything to the BangGOD. I was very happy with how the craft turned out. The rear brace, GoPro mount and a few other bits got lost in the mail so when the replacements arrive I will assemble it and upload fresh photos.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

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.
