The Triple Helix cinewoop was made from the electronics from a Eachine Tyro 79 transplanted into a Reptile Cloud 149HD frame. This build takes the same concept and replaces the camera, VTX, and receiver with the Caddx Nebula Pro. The frame height is reduced, by changing the frame standoffs from 35mm to 20mm. With the reduced frame height, the XT30 connector is moved from below the top plate to be on top. The tail is replaced to mount the stock Vista antenna, which handles both video and the control link. The front camera mount plates are replaced with TPU 3D printed parts. This build also sports an improved Hero Session camera mount, with better vibration isolation, and a protective flare shield. In addition, the previous 3D printed ducts are replaced with a version which is tougher in crashes.

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..

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
