in 2022 so far the tally goes:

  • 1x digital build
  • 4x analog builds

why analog? well micros and with that ultra portability. one Ethix transmitter bag fits the tango 2, fatsharks, micro quad and up to 5 batteries as well a s a naked gopro or caddx peanut. it's the size of a lunchbag; toss it into your bookbag and rip a lunchtime session. With DJI everything is a bit bigger and the bag count increases to 2. Then when I'm up in the air, it doesn't matter if it's digital or analog, I'm in the moment.

This is one of my favourite frames, the intrepid v2 but I'm trying out the Lite version - 9mm motors with thinner arms. It's one of the few micro ultra light frames with a gopro couch and 19mm camera cage. No whoop (25.5x25.5mm) FC mounts though which I dont mind but it does support 3 standoff heights which building this ultra low with 10mm standoffs make it look super cool and also brings the CG in a lot.

excited to use my old favourite camera here - the runcame micro eagle. The frame comes with a TPU printed circular polarised antenna holder but it's older from 2018 so I dug up a foxeer lollipo RHCP antenna. I had to trim the TPU down to 10mm, without any issues.

edited insta360 go footage (no stabilization)

edited insta360 go 2 footage (caddx peanut) without stabilization. Also discovered the action camera field of view which simulates superview. it isn't as wide as ultra wide but it maximized the horizontal FOV which is great. Also while editing, I discovered it has a LOG colour mode which is perfect for grading....that will be the next video.

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..
