New race build! 20x20 Five33 Switchback Pro with TBS Tracer. I love the way this quad handles. Originally built with SFGs, I'm now rocking front braces for camera protection and durability. Currently running the 533 HeadsUp 1960Kv motors, and racewire for easier motor swaps. This build is 30g lighter than my previous race quads, weighing in at ~270g.

Rocking the standard parts list of the 2020 MultiGP Champs.

The antenna mount from 533 and the camera mount from NulliFieD are awesome!

Now that the Talon FCs appear to be discontinued, I'll probably move to the Hobbywing F7 stack (or a TMotor FC). Also considering when to make the jump to HDZero, and if I'll move to a new airframe as well (e.g. the Typhon) or keep running the Switchback Pro.

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..
