This frame is really fun. I get 4-5 min flight time with 450mah 3s (long type). Highly recommend! It's a little heavier than your average toothpick (126g) but it flies amazingly well. These Rcinpower 1204 motors are great and very efficient Haven't tried any other props yet, these Gemfan 3016 are awesome and I haven't had to replace them yet. I may try some 3028 once I bust this set.

Here is some DVR! I'm not the best pilot, but some people asked for it so here you go:

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..
