5 inch impulseRC Apex for the DJI air unit. Tmotor f55 4in1 esc, xing 2306 2750. Axiis are lhcp

Edit: Finally got crossfire, and better axiis. Also the foam mounted kakute gyro makes this fly really smooth (compared to Kakute HDV for DJI).

Update: 08/14/2020, SMA/MMCX adapter cable broke midflight, got stuck on office building for a little bit. Sholder bolt snapped off inside press nut.. Finding replacement hardware was great... and now I have a backup frame. Also axiis are impossible to find, trying vas ion with a straight connector I bought on accident awhile ago, pretty good so far.

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.
