Holy crap, 40A ESCs exist now! Surely 30A ones would be enough for the F40s, no? People fly the F60s with 30A ESCs.

I've got the frame from (german store). There was no PDB included. Actually i've recently updated the build to use the Skitzo (Raceflight) flight controller. Still using the RROSD PDB.

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..
