Raggio Veloce

This is my 3rd Raggio Veloce build - a 5S race specialist with gopro mounting ability. I went with the ummagawd motors for their 5s sweetspot kv. Loving them on 5s so far, plus they are the best looking motor IMO. I've gone back and forth between a bottom mount, top mount and toilet tank mount frame and still am unsure what I prefer for racing. For freestyle it's hand's down top mount. On 4s I prefer bottom mount, on 5s I prefer top mount. For this frame the toilet tank seems to suit me best, but you can also top mount your battery vertically.

I raced this setup at XDC Las Vegas, where Team Velocidrone took 2nd place to the evil Nexxblades ;)

MultiGP Regional Qualifier track with this setup

HD ready for your most epic flights
With strap slots for both a normal parallel battery as well as the perpendicular "toilet tank" style, Raggio Veloce can mount a GoPro session up front for HD footage, and it uses the same unique carbon plate sandwich that makes Raggio Lungo's footage so crisp and jello-free.
Spare parts for crash damage recovery.
Each Raggio Veloce kit comes with 5 arms and an extra set of cam protection braces, in case you manage to break something during an unexpected landing.
Not afraid to accessorize.
A host of accessories, such as booties, GoPro mounts, antenna mounts, and more are all available on Thingiverse.
Additionally, Raggio Veloce is compatible with Raggio Lungo arms and accessories, so you can upgrade to 7" arms, add a GPS to the rear, or that sweet RAGGIO underglow.

Love it! I'm a big fan of my Ragu Velcro. I have some heavy duty-booties soon to go on thingiverse. Also a split mini holder. I would love it if you'd share that awesome 80s "raggio" logo from your videos. One day I will have some flight recordings worthy of it.

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..
