I decided to log most of my custom build on RotorBuilds finally, so I will be sharing them day by day until I'm caught up currently. This build I made for my fiance so when she gets to Florida she will have her own 5" custom build ready to fly. I absolutely love the way this flies and handles a GoPro to, and doesn't feel that heavy at all like other quads do, and plenty of room to build in as well. I rarely fly this build do to the fact I don't wanna ruin her build before she gets to fly it herself, lol. I currently don't have the maiden flight video for this quad, but I do have the footage saved (I was super busy working back then), but I will be posting that on youtube very soon, and I will embed it on this page as well. Incase anyone is curious the word MAHAL means LOVE.

There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
