This is my first 5" build — and it came together really nicely! Currently I'm running Betaflight 4.1.2 with RPM filtering. It's endured a handful of crashes so far and survived. Stay safe out there!

Update July 2020: I had a failsafe from 50' and managed to do some damage to the frame, as well as kill the 4-in-1 ESC.

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..

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..
