As winter is comming, theres not so much possibilities to fly outside so i decide to reuse some Syma X5C (FPV mod) components an try to create full acro FPV capable micro quad for indor flying.
As i would like to stay low with price i chose Tiny whoop 95mm (some QX95 clone) frame for 1s Lipo with brushed motors, and use my Radiolink AT9S TX and EV200D goggles
I reused SYMA motors (modified to 8.5mm, Lipos and basicaly also FPV camera+VTX)

Partlist:
Frame: QX95 clone ( 8€ )
FC: F3 OSD brushed ( 13€ )
Motor: 8.5mm 8520 brushed ( 6€ )
VTX+Camera: JMT 5.8G 25MW 40CH 800TVL Transmitter ( 12.8 )
RX: Radiolink R6DSM ( 8.4€ )
1000uF/6.3V capacitor ( 0.5€ )
550mah 1S Lipo from SYMA X5C (nearly end of life, but ordered some GNB's) ( 4€ )

Sum ( 52.7€ )

Build Version 2 (frame turned from back to front, camera on top of the frame)

After I broke one arm, I decided to modify concept a bit and reverse frame front to back.
I just glee arm with some strong black glue and add additional piece of carbon plate from some old ZMR250 frame to make it stronger.
Now the broken part is on back of the drone.

Camera is now sitting on the foam on double side tape and zipped
I also finally receive R6DSM receiver.

Build Version 1:
I'm using reversed frame orientation (top is bottom) to keeps battery as close to possible to center of gravity.
There's also some modification on frame (cutting) to fits VTX and antenna. I also modified VTX and cut video line betwen camera and VTX and connect them to FC to see OSD. WS28Led not works on mine. As Battery strip Im using very light strip from TOPK charger.

more information about build on my website:

how it fly?
It flies quite lazy as Sima Lipos are very cheap, but its is good for start and training.
I spend few hours with adjusting rates as there was quit strong woobling on descent. I found pretty good setup, but main reason I think are still weak batteries.
After 3 hours of flying I broke one arm, so waiting for another frame (and arm protectors) :)

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..

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
