First 5" build in a long time with new components, all my other 5" builds are still using original Emax Redbottoms so it's nice to see what else is out there. This one gave me a lot of problems with voltage spikes frying the electronics but eventually found a combo (below) that works. Flies great with stock PID's.

I love the Thor motors on my build. What frame is that?

Thanks, really digging them too. It's an AirbladeUAV Intrepid 5". It's still in prototype. Should be available pretty soon though.

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

The Hero6 is..
