This is my newest racer, I swapped over to 6S and am having no regrets doing so.

The frame is my custom designed frame, the Sailfish 220 SX, but flipped upsidedown with a pod designed by Mewo FPV. I love how it handles with a mid-mount battery like this.

I have not had a negative experience with any of the parts that I used in this build and highly recommend them.

Here is some DVR of it in action: (dont mind the uncalibrated ammeter...)

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..
