This is not just another Apex. I took great care building this guy. Hand selected all the parts to keep it as light as possible without comprimising strength and performance. I am using aluminum screws only to connect the standoffs shaving around 5 grams. I decided to go with the fettec 35 amp 4-1 also saving around 10 grams (this number is a estimate, I forgot to weigh the esc and fc before installing.). So the AUW with 1100mah 6s and a gopro session is 638g. This build originally had differnet motors and came to 625g, but I decided to go with FPV Cycle's new 5" motors witch are a bit heavier. That being said I was not disapointed. They are hands down the best motors I have ever flown!!!

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..

There's more artistic freedom and..
