UPDATE
I've switched over to crossfire. Same antenna placement, approximately the same range (but stronger LQ and CRSF shot)


**I the serial # has already been used for this motor, I bought it off a friend

I saw the Diatone MAMBA f7 had multiple LED connections - so I decided to build a kwad that made use of all of them. Turns out only the LED pad near the USB connector is addressable, the other LED pins are controlled by a button with a decent selection of colors and patterns. I made use of two as you can see by super gluing them to the side of the sled. Overall the build wasn't too difficult, I did need to file out some parts of the frame - the tolerances are REALLY tight.

First hover/easy flight went well. Definitely a different flight characteristic. I feel like the camera is lower than I'm used to when I flip or roll.

The r9mm antenna gets decent signal, at 100mw I don't really dip below 80 rssi

Updates to come!

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..
