Choose your parts wisely because this is a tight build. I ran all of the wiring under the flight controller first, made sure everything was working correctly on the bench, and then I soldered all the ESC connections.

I made my own VTX antenna/receiver antenna mount. I also made a spacer to take up the gap on the back of the GoPro mount, and a set of camera mounts to move a full-size camera out farther in the frame.

So for a Spektrum SPM4648 receiver you should power it (orange) with the 3.3v pad, ground (black) to any negative pad, and signal (gray) to the pad labeled RX2. In Betaflight, on the ports tab, enable Serial RX on UART 2, also make sure you have the correct receiver in the configuration tab. You should set the receiver to SPEKSAT for receiver mode, and SPEKTRUM2048 for serial receiver provider. You'll also have to update the channel map on the receiver tab to TAER1234. Hope that helps!

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..
