Working on the pusher version of the I never thought props would stay on the tiny emax motor shafts, but to my amazement they do... I drilled out the shaft holes a few mm into the prop then press fit the rest of the way. I was doing flips and rolls above my house and nothing popped off :)

v1 had the frame sandwiched with the and FC under the frame and the vtx,rx and camera above the frame. That layout is a real pain to workin on.
I decided to put everything on top of the frame minus the battery...compared to v1... this flys better and longer.. im getting about 3 min on a used 2s doing acro.

compared to my 1s 65mm (ChickenHead)... this is a rocket... very nimble and still super light.
After flying for a few days... in the backyard and out in the desert.
The feeling of constant fear of a prop shooting off from a heavy g manouver makes the experience not so enjoyable. Gonna tear down and rebuild into something a little less neurotic.

Nice! I still have one of those frames sitting here waiting for me to decide how I want to build it. Thinking about using it for a 1s build.

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..
