I just started a new build that will be nice and small when folded. I used the X900 tricopter plates and shortened the arms to around 10.5 inches. I had to shorten the rear arm another inch because it interfered with the FC. The motors are mounted, arms are loosely tightened and wires run. I am using a custom Y6 power harness.

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..
