Simplecopters V-tail
I back engineered it.
It has a 30 degree angle for the rear motors, which flies much better than with a 45 degree angle.
Yaw authority on this is amazingly good.
It flies very stable and is a good camera platform.
And it has foldable arms, so easy to transport.
This was build with a KK 2.1 flightcontroller and 30 Amp ESC's, but I'm planning a rebuild with a F4 flightcontroller, maybe a small HGLRC stack.
It's the best flyer I have.
Simple but so good...

I should rebuild those old ones.

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..
