5inch pickleBig cut by CNCMADNESS!

I loved my pickleBig 4inch so much i wanted to cut the 5inch and build something really light! the goal was to be an ultralight, but it turned out being basically a normal lite, racer..

AUW = 370g with a rline v3 1300mah 4s pack.
DRY = 220 grams

i really love these hyperlite motors. its pretty much my style, to never use the same motors twice. with this being SO lite -- i figured 2505.5 would be neat to try! i've been in love with Hyperlite's lately, those single strand windings are so beautiful.

this has been maidened -- flies pretty great on stock, but ill be improving the tune over the next few days! ill post some DVR eventually~

Need your quad tuned? Sick of tinkering with settings and just want to concentrate on flying?! I got you!

check me out at and drop in a ticket with me and lets get you in the air and show you what a quad SHOULD fly like!

bro -- i figured it out and i dont get it ...... it wanted to be on 6s.... lmao.. no clue why 4s didnt work right, 35 amps should be plenty... but i plopped a 6s 1150 talon (176grams) on it -- and put gemfan 51466 props on the bitch.. motor_output_limit of 75 for effective kv of 2022kv.. flies like a god damn champ dude. no more just dying. nothing. flies like it should, got it locked in tight as a pickle jar... /boggle

Cool , 6s giving the reg the extra volts to stop it dropping out, Thats all i can think of

I only had this happen to me once, and it was that my motors actually were "HV". That rig will not fly on anything less than 5S for more than 30 seconds. I do just run it on 6S and I've never had it happen since.

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..
