3/10/18 - This is gonna be so cool! I built it out enough to test fly with the f4 pro corners. I don't like this FC. Getting a Helio Spring.

3/12/18 - Crashed hard. Killed a motor. Tossed GPS. Waiting on replacement motors. Flew with FauxPro. It's okay. Getting a Runcam Split.

3/20/18 - Split, Helio and Mach2 are going in tonight. Don't like CMOS, getting another Foxeer Arrow. This time a Mini to get my view outside the carbon cage. This build is getting pricey but I hope to sell the parts I wound up not liking.

3/21 - Starting to fly it regularly. Mach 2 is great. Smartaudio is handy. I even listen to the fpv feed through an earbud sometimes. I'm currently designing some accessories.

3/27/18 - Crash Testing the Runcam Split Mini Housing. Of course I didn't install the SD card protector plate.

Other than refining my printed accessories and adding crossfire, I'd say this build is essentially complete!

This thing is the cadillac of 5" quads.

Super clean raggio! Thank you for sharing all your build pics!

Thanks! You guys did a hell of a job with this thing! I added skids to the booties just to keep that sexy ass bottom plate sexy. Still messing with it a lot. Going to get Lungo arms for it when they are out. Who am I kidding I'll probably just build a Lungo.

I really like it, I just used an extra lng lens for fpv cam to get my PoV outside the carbon cage.

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..

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
