so this is the second version of this frame with some minor tweaks to improve things a little, unfortunately the first 2 version have died in high speed impacts and bird attacks so I'm waiting on the post man to get this bad boy back in the air..

so the improvements over the first version are a little more clearance for slightly larger props, moving the rear standoff back a touch to improve clearance from the esc board, m3 front stand offs and lastly spacing at the front for a runcam/foxeer micro cam. this resulted in a the wheelbase increasing from 103mm to 105mm but thats not a massive issue..
the protoype has been flying the new emax se1106 6000kv motors on both 3 and 4s... its quite frankly stupid fast, i can't say for sure how fast it is but its somewhere between 70-100mph, it eats batteries and is pushing a power to weight ration in the 12:1 region. Its way nicer to fly on 3s than 4 but its a bit like crack its super addictive and moreish.. constantly flying 4s does require in-depth pre flighting the Kwad before every session as it has a tendency to rattle stuff loose and then suck it through the props ( last time it was the sensor board for the micro camera with predictable results ). any way can't wait to get this total beast of a machine back in the air with the updated frame design and start testing some cut down 3" props and see if i can crack that 100mph wall..

Still needs one more revision to the camera bay, it needs more room to clear the plug on the foxeer micro as the rev 2 is only getting 20° of tilt

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..
