First Build. Wanted something that I could learn on, crash and repair easily. The Tiny Whoop was the perfect solution.

After a few parts broke after some test flights, I ended up going for faster motors, a smaller camera, and a different frame. The antenna to the Rx broke off multiple times, but a bit of soldering got the job done. The Antenna to the Tx of the Camera then broke, so I created a new wrap for the antenna with some heat shrink, which worked fine. Finally, I found a camera mount/canopy that seemed to hold the camera at a decent angle; it worked ok, but I may end up changing it later.

All and all, this trial-and-error build ran into more setbacks than I thought possible for a Tiny Whoop, but it still flew great.

Update: One year later, still great quad. Needs replacement motors, as they are getting weak, but still fun to fly.

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..
