Thanks to SamW85 and his IGOW3 Machine I was inspired to bring an old and super heavy 85X HD back from the unused.
Basically it's only the 85X frame with HX-100 motors (1103 8000kv) a new HGLRC 10amp whoop aio and the new HD canopy of the Meteor75 1S that fits the Walksnail 1S board.
Now you know why I call it Frankenstein ^^
It's basically 20grams lighter than it was as 85X HD and with another 20grams lighter 3s 300mah HV packs it's now a fairly nimble 3s whoop.
With an overall weight incl. 3S lipo of 80grams it surely still is heavy but flies surprisingly good.

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..
