Finally put a Radix 2 in something pretty :)

This flight was on 6" Gate Breakers and the 6S VTC6 pictured above. 13 minutes of steady cruising with juice to spare.

I see you have the gopro mount from ImpulseRC. Are you able to fit loose ND filters like the TBS ones?

Just Aluminum to VHB to CF. 3M VHB Tape is enough for a cruiser like this. If I planned on smacking it around I might want something a bit more robust.

Nice looking rig! What sort of flight times do you get on it? Are you running 3S Li-Ion?

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..
