My first hex and boy, is this thing fun!
It was blast just trying to figure out the layout without having to put the single ESC's on the arms.

Did you use a power distribution board?
Nice build, I think I will follow in your footsteps and order a frame today.

How are you wiring the 2 single esc's alongside the 4in1 esc to the FC? A tiny hex sure looks like a ton of fun! Great build!

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..
