Using my old spare parts I was albe to put together all the neccessary so I can lifft off. I was missing only frame. I was following Criscrossfpv for some time so I decided to pick one of his designs. I picked Drangonfly because it's the lightest of the CrissSross designs.

It looked difficult to build at first but when I started it went quite smooth. The packaged includes nice hardware and some softmount rings and plastic standoffs for your stack. Not a huge fan of them so I've put my steel ones. The frame is designed for micro cameras but I managed to fit DJI cam inside by removing the plastic pieces that are in cam mounting holes. The lens stick tiny bit out of the protective carbon cage so I printed the protector. Placing the fpv cam in can be a hassle (depending on cam you choose), so I suggest to put it into frame straight away so you don't have to play with it later on. I had no issues with DJI cam because at that point the plactic bits from mounting holes were removed and cam slided nicely in. It was different with Foxeer Predator Micro which I tried to squeeze in while that plastic bits were still in place.

I am very pleased with the resulting 656g AUW with Hero7 and 1000mAh 6s Ovonic battery. It should give me nice flying experince. I am eager to test the toilet tank battery placement.

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..
