GEPRC PX2.5 Phoenix

I have built this quad to be a light and small, yet nippy craft. This has been my last build before the “big rethink”, when I have restarted the hobby from scratch.

I have studied bind and flight version of the GEPRC Phoenix and have decided that I could build that with a slight upgrade. Instead of the F4 stack I have chosen the F7 which had double gyros. And instead of the default camera I have gone for the brand new Caddx Ratel, which has excellent picture.

When I have built this one I already have got myself the goggles, so no more 7” screen attached on the controller. And I have been practicing in simulator some time, so I finally dared to go AIR-mode and enjoy the freedom of rotation in any direction

This quad has been a great tool for me to learn and dare to go further into the twilight zone of flying. Amazing times, very little crashing but a lot of learning. I know that some say that without crashing you never learn, but I would not fully agree…

This video includes some footage about the quad. Also some failsafes with my Avant X3 EVO, where I have managed to create a really funky mix in the radio, where reaching 80% RSSi has resulted in failsafe. Took some time to discover the mistake, afterwards it has flown again nicely.

This other one has some power loops, which have been my first ones.

You must have been very tired after this development. You can join monkey mart to relax after stressful hours.

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..
