Return of NanoShark!

My original NanoShark proto (Thanks to LAZD of Falcon Multirotors) build was probably my favorite looking micro of all time, but suffered poor performance from the Sunnysky 0703 and oversized LiPos. I've been flying a BetaFPV Meteor65 here and there and the performance from the BT2.0 connector and 0802 motors had me thinking it might be time to revive my favorite 1S build. I'm glad I did! The thing is an absolute blast! I will likely rebuild it extra pretty. I was in such a hurry I just soldered the pin connectors to the ESC instead of lengthening motor wire.

The BT2.0 hype is real. I don't see the normal sag at all anymore. In fact I've almost killed a few of these RDQ 450s by landing at 3.2 thinking it would bounce back to 3.6 but I'd actually flown it down to 3.2. I'm getting over 4 minutes easy of full derp around the warehouse, and have flown for 5 minutes on a few occasions. This is my warehouse machine for sure. :)

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..
