Although its a bit dated, Ive been eyeing this frame for sometime as Ive liked the design...kinda reminds me of the starfox ship from the SNES in all its polygonal Super FX chip glory...

These frames aren't too popular as it is a rather cramped build space and limits your stack & vtx/rx options. But with stacks & peripheral components getting smaller and more compact, its time to revisit this design. During this build I must have taken it apart a dozen times and dropped F bombs like I was recording a trap rapper dis track...

But Im glad I pulled the trigger on these, as they are small and light weight and suprisingly it survives some abuse. Comes with a laser serialized titanium base plate (and titanium bottle opener /prop nut tool!) with beefy carbon arms and a thick 3d printed TPU canopy. i see why they added the bottle opener... well played rotorX..

In comparison to my acrobrat build its is roughly the same size without props.

I built these twins in 4s 2750kv & 1600kv using my favorite SRS motors again from Mad Components.... the 2750kv in 4s is a rediculous giggle monster and the 6s is a mid range freestyle capable cruiser.

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..
