FleXin' On Them

Flex RC came out with a 2.5 inch ultra lightweight frame. I can't wait to try it.

4/25/18 - At 10.5g this is one of the lightest frames available in any brushless size. The frame is in stock and shipping at FlexRC.com

I have the Omnibus in hand, the Wave 4in1 is a direct connection to the Nano with an 8 pin connector. 2DogRC is going out of business and had it on sale for $18.99

Motors ordered.

Camera, VTX, props, and battery ordered.

04/30/18 - The camera, props, and battery arrived. The VTX was the wrong size. I tried assembling the frame but there are 2 feet notches at the rear that don't seem to fit in place easily. I think a slight filing of the area will allow it to fit better. The frame came with lots of standoffs and screws. It's larger in footprint than you'd expect from pictures.

05/01/18 - I took a file to the rear of the roll cage hooks where they meet the baseplate. It's hard to describe the area but if you buy this frame you may need to give it about 20 file strokes for those rear hooks to slide into place easily. Snug but not impossible/breaking point. All parts are in except the TPU protection cover. My buddy is printing in a Chartreuse TPU.

How are those 3B-R motors? Do they get hot on 3s?
I ordered the 6000kV's to be save

Insanely powerful and smooth. Would buy again.

Which Caddx is that? Looks like you've got a Foxeer listed.

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..
