Source One V3 Freestyle

Budget build with an old Source One V3 frame, motors, and VTX I had in storage.

Running the SupaFly Freestyle preset on Betaflight 4.4.0 with minor tweaks.

Tried flashing Bluejay but on 48kHz it was super janky. 24kHz was better but I flashed back to BLHeli_S and running without RPM filtering now. The latest Betaflight notch filters seem to do a great job in lieu of bidirectional DSHOT. Will post some flight footage soon.

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..

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..
