last revision had a full speed head on collision with a metal railing surprisingly bot much broken! These ultralights are so resiliant! it was just a couple wires that got desoldered.

since i had it opened i decided to change out the camera to a lighter one. the runcam phoenix nano is one heavy booger. I had to try thr baby ratel as well as hglrc's nice nylon whoop canopy that has a decent nano cam mount as well as a high turtle fin.

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 a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
