note: sample motors, so i can't talk about it.

so i built 2s version using the same 1s motor from earlier build.
it's powerful. it's too much for my yard, so i kept it up high. i can't come down and fly it in my yard.

the speed is about the same as 1105/1204 gf3018 setups.
but the setup is much lighter.

i always want to build a 2.5" racer. but i can't with what available right now. those motors are either too small to handle 2.5" tri-blade props or too powerful and heavy for 2.5" props. and this build might be it. though i'm not a good racer nor a good pilot in general. but i hope people will like this build.

it's good to keep it a secret. the company makes a new motor and they want to make some money of off it. if the business is good, they'd be willing to try again.

me and many people wanting this motor for a long time. it has nothing to do with Bob Roogi and his toothpicks.

Yeah, no worries. Not expecting you to spill the beans. Just having fun analyzing your vid and comments. If its in prototype now I guess the rest of us will find out what it is soon enough.

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..
