How are those motors? I'm considering them for a budget build. I've been using BH 1407s on all my 3" builds, but I'm curious to try something different and cheaper.

They're pretty solid, definitely need a lighter 4s lipo. But otherwise they seem to have plenty of punch with the ptichy BN props

Buy a more mah battery, like 1300mah or 1500.

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..
