This is a low profile mid to long range quad that can carry large (up to 155mm long) top mounted battery.

quick climb, Mountain test run Helgeland Islands, Norway

The original "deadcat" arms layout has been modified to more traditional "X" layout in order to avoid a mismatch between COG & COT.

Built as a fast mid range surfer for aggressive mountain flights (running 2200mAh 5S and up to 2600mAh 6S Lipo batteries), however also performs well as a long range quad when carrying 4000mAh 6S LiIon or even very heavy 4000mAh 6S LiPo.

I've opted for custom build motors from T-Motor, these are based on "F40" Pro-line with identical properties as their top of the range version IV, just upgraded in size to 2407 (rather than the original 2306) and custom 2323kv.

AUW with GoPro Hero6 is 707g before battery (my preferred batteries are 4000mAh 6S LiIon, or 2600mAh 6S LiPo at 425g each).

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..
