I have always wanted to build an AOS frame, so I decided to get the 5.5 evo. However, I was a bit disappointed that the iflight official store sent me the v1 frame, despite the v1.2 frame being out for months. But I didn't let that stop me. I also wanted to try some larger motors than the 2207s I had put on a 5" frame, so I chose some 2506 1500kv xing2s. I flew her for the first time with my 1200mah 6s cnhl batteries, and she flew beautifully. But these 2506 motors really drew some current, and the voltage sagged really early in the flight. I have extended the battery lead so I can fit a 2200mah 6s, but I haven't had an opportunity to test this combination. I suspect that the weight increase will be too great, and adversely affect the flight characteristics. But I will find out soon enough.

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..
