BetaFPV Mosquito!?

I saw this frame and was stoked to try it out. I put my very first quad (an Newbeedrone acrobee) back into service after sitting on the shelf for a while (it had been replaced by the Meteor65 Acro). But being a spoiled child of digital FPV I wanted something better. I saw a video where someone (99% sure it was Albert Kim) talk about the bt 2.0 connector and the 450mah betafpv 1s lipos, so I figured I'd make a mosquto that used those. I picked up a c02 camera (which had better quality) and the betafpv 1s board without the built in receiver (b/c I was using tracer at the time) and built it up. I found if I filed out the holes in the bottom of the frame, I didn't even have to solder like i did with the Newbeedrone motors! The 1102 Betafpv motors give you way more power as well.

It is a brilliant pocket quad and hilariously fun. 450mah 1s lipos give you a great flight time and surprising power. the c02 camera has way better quality than what I have on my meteor65 and definitely better than the nbd camera. I prefer it with triblades. I have plenty of bite since we're open prop with this frame. I'll be replacing tracer with a happymodel tiny expressLRS receiver on Monday

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..
