What do you think of those Hawksky Motors? Are they high quality? Thinking about picking some up.

The second batch seem to be good - the first batch had a quality issue which they made good on

Very nice. What's the weight this?

What kind of flight time do you get on this?

It depends on how aggressive I am with the throttle and which props I'm using. If I'm flying very aggressively, 3 minutes on 1500mah 4s with the 6045x3, and maybe 4 minutes with 6040x2

But, I've flown/cruised upwards of 5-6 minutes on 4s 1500mah with 6040x2 and 6-8 minutes on 4s 2200mah with the 6045x3.

I think 5s 1800 would be the sweet spot. This baby comes alive on 5s

Oh damn, I thought you were asking about my Sköll build. Honestly, the 6" Æther is dead right now and needs to be rebuilt. I ran her hard for two weekends at the races - I never really did any long range / extended flights.

I'm guessing because of the stupid light weight, and 6"... you'd expect the flight times I posted above, plus a minute or two.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class!

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..
