This is by now my favorite build/drone ever!
Flyes like a charm (not even tuned yet), unbelievable powerful, agile as fuck.
Also: no one fly's Y6 copters, which already makes this thing hella sick!

The Frame is completely custom designed by a friend with inspiration from the Freelon Y6 and my personal preferences/knowledge/experience.

This is such a sick build. Like a Y6 2Fiddy sorta. I did the same thing with a Tomoquads Katana 4". I need to post that thing..

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..
