My 2nd quad but first build and this thing is a tank! My first quad is a 5" Cl-1 a friend built and the frame broke very fast. Recently replaced it and broke again. I'm still learning so I crash alot. And the 3" Phreak takes it.

I've hit a pole head on full speed(4s 1500mah) and only broke the camera.
Failsafe above a 10story building and free fell onto asphalt.
Hit a concrete wall cruising pretty fast.
Lots of parking garage crashes.
I also let all my friends that never flown try it out and disarm them when they got too high / far.

A motor finally died today. I had 1 minute to order Amazon's same day delivery so I bought it then realized they were 3750kv instead of my 4100kv i had on there. Since I'm changing all 4 motors now I might as well post the build.
Edit: Motor burnt because of bad ESC. Ordered replacement ESC

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
