The ultimate workhorse micro. This is my OddityRC xi25 Polar AKA the money maker.

As someone who makes his living from filming with FPV drones I can say, 9 out of 10 jobs this is the drone I'm flying. I like using the polar version as a lot of jobs are in low light environments or even straigh up at night. Having the polar and being able to see loose cables in the dark is a must for me.

It's the toyota hilux of micros.

Capable of seamlessly transitioning between traditional indoor cinewhooping and high speed outdoor acro, which comes in handy especially in music videos.

Just like it's smaller brother, the xi20, the xi25 was designed for performance above all else. The Spinnybois 1405-4800kv motors were designed to make the prop line fit perfectly inside of the duct, resulting in better efficency and lower sound levels. Seriously, this is quietest 2.5" whoop you'll ever hear.

With a naked gopro 12 it gets a whopping 6 minutes of flight time out of a 4s 850mah pack. In that configuration it won't be sub250 but it will deliver every shot you could possibly need. If that's not enough, slap on an 1100mah lihv pack and you're good for 8 minutes of cruising.

And if commercial work isn't your cup of tea, it's a monster at freestyle.

Coming in at just $395 for the O3 version and $328 for the vista/polar version after using discount code LE_TI_LIK. It's both cheaper and it outperforms similar class micros by a mile.

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..
