Little 3D printed guy.

My first quad, built to learn basics and LOS flight.

I saw the frame on thingiverse few months back and always wanted to build it, so here it is.

I printed the frame from gray PLA first, but after going through 5 frames in 3 days, I printed it from yellow ABS, that frame is still going strong after many crashes.

The quad flies pretty nice with stock Betaflight 3.2.3 tune. First I wanted to add AIO camera to the quad and learn FPV, but I decided to build 5 inch mini rather than upgrade this little guy. It's fun flying it, but I got an itch for bigger one :P

The frame is not my design, credits for that go to punkkils on thingiverse. But designing my own micro frame for 3d printing sounds like fun project for sure :P

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..
