After really enjoying the flyability of an Ultralite racer I was on the hunt for a more available and better design than the Racerx et5. Turns out it was under my nose as the designer and dev "SugarK" is a member of a club nearby.
This build comes in at 178grams (approx 280grams with 850 4s tattu). it is built for racing using the hdzero video system. overall it feels very solid with great protection for electrical components. combine with the SugarK presents in betaflight 4.3 this this flies on rails!

see SugarK's build page for details

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!

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