I'm revisiting my very first build. Last year when I started in the hobby, from scratch I built a tiny trainer with dji. I had a horrible setup for the naked Vista. I crashed this so many times. I broke a camera and a motor or two. But it's the same Betafpv 20a f411 aio and a new Vista. I'll put the nebula pro Nano in it for now.

Analog has a place in this Hobby. It's cheaper for video hardware and has a more mature ecosystem for racing. The latency thing has been creating FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt) to help keep people on that hardware and Fatshark maintained this focus in its digital system. However we're spoiled with 4k video in our pockets. We want good video quality all the time. I'm not a professional drone racer. I don't know if I'll ever be in DRL, but I like going fast and I like DJI video so hence the digital tiny trainer.

Hopefully I can get more local pilots to build tiny trainers and have some fun races.

How's the heat dissipation with the Vista stripped and then placed under the chassis like that? Do you run it in lower power modes only?

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..
