My first clean build of a 5" quad. I'm not so happy with the quality of the bottom plate, it's a little bit warped. But hey, crash it, break it, get a new one - armattan has a lifetime warranty for their frames - maybe the next one is better ;)
A highlight of this build is the WhitenoiseFPV SynergyF4 AIO FC. VTX and Rx are attached to the FC - this is an incredibly compact design. The only cautionary note is the lack of the LED cable. I had to buy it separately - about 20$ for shipping to germany for a 1$ item...

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..
