This was #sponsored, hence the influx of HGLRC parts, but honestly the majority of them are highly recommended - I was surprised with the quality of the ESC, motors, and frame especially!

Wind 5 lite Frame: Durable, chamfered, easy to assemble, good looking, good layout... Great racer frame that easily competes with the fly533 switchback!
Aeolus 2207.5 2550kv (rcinpower): These are RCInPower manufactured, and so are fantastic quality and look the part. On the pricier side but still completely acceptable at $79 for 4, and produces a ton of thrust (well, 1.8kg or something).
Zeus 745 stack: Misleading name, but the f722+45a esc works great; really good response and never got warm or anything... stacks are hard to judge but this was well laid-out, so a good option. QC is getting better too!
Zeus 800mw: Easy to mount and all, not too sure how good the noise is but mine was fine. Apparently the mini hammer antennas are really noisy, so am not too sure whether to recommend or not. Still, great vtx nonetheless.
Toothless 2: Great cam, would recommend. Really sharp as you'd expect from foxeer.

Those motors look super sick, but I have no idea why they are so heavy. Usually RCInpower makes pretty lightweight stuff... like the GTS V2 is 31.5 grams but these are 37+ grams. Only the weight put me off...

Yeah Agreed! They are super beefy, which is not brilliant for all out performance. However, on a freestyler, these would be top notch since they are so silky smooth

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..
