My 2.5" micro. Absolutely love it!!

The motors run very well (would get 7500kv next time though) - and the battery is a good size.

125g AUW with 450mah 3s Nanotechs. A little heavy but I'm using alu standoffs front and back and alu screws in the front because topmounted battery, the frame is heavy (AND thus durable) and the battery strap and leads could be lighter. Was a little worried about the 1104 7500kv motors for a setup this "heavy", but they're really running well - and only luke warm even on 3s!

Flying it with Skyzone Sky02s goggles and a Taranix Q X7 transmitter.

If you wanna use standard hardware, drill out the holes suuuuuuper carefully. Other than that it's a great frame!

From the pics it looks like you've got M3 screws on the frame. Do you think you'd have to drill it out for M2 screws?

Don't know the size of the holes, but maybe, yeah. Never used M2....

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..
