Just out of curiosity, I'm about to build one of these with the bardwell fc esc combo, and was wondering how you aligned your ESC, and how you fastened your xt60 lead? I cant quite see from the pics.
Sorry if these seem like stupid questions, but this is my first build. cheers.

the esc alignmment does not really matter as long as the chord from the FC to the ESC still reaches and all the motors can be nice and snug. The flight controller seems to be aligned with the XT60 on the side. You can change the orientation of the FC in betaflight pretty easily. You dont really need to secure the XT60 just make sure your battery wont fly off and you shouldnt have any issues.

As for the xt60, yeah basically just make sure it doesnt flop around a ton, if theres a lot of slack you can rubber band it to the frame or cut it to length.

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..
