The one, the only, quad. She flies, she takes a punch and guess what... she'll get up and fly again. I've hit steel poles at 70 mph and only dented carbon. The only other frame that even comes close is the shrike which... has also taken some pretty massive hits, but I just don't race as much as I once used to so I can't really vouch for durability over the long haul. With that in mind. I'll never fly another frame again. There simply isn't a need to. Everything that comes out now days seems to be trying to clone what is already there. Is the reverb better? Lighter perhaps? Okay, awesome, I'll try the reverb once my aliens die. See you in 2020 reverb. ;)

Pics are of my 4.6 cause... it was sitting next to me as I was writing this.

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..
