This is my first foray into the FPV digital world. Decided to jump on the Fatshark bandwagon with my first POD designed around the Shark Byte TX5S.1 VTX.

My goal was to make a low profile design So I had to try a FC / ESC AIO single board, So in essence there would be only a 2 stack POD design.
I have tried several FC / ESC boards which caused me to re-design the POD constantly over a few months. At one stage I gave up on 2 stacks and settled on a 3 stack design for a different un-released POD I had, but recently I had a break through on the 2 stack design for the original POD I had in mind.
The end result was this.

Frame:- Diatone GT R369 SX 3" Frame
Motors:- BetaFPV 2004 1700KV Brushless Motors
FC / ESC:- HGLRC Zeus35 AIO F4 3-6S Flight Controller & 35A Blheli_S 4 In 1 Brushless ESC 20x20mm
Camera:- RunCam Shark Byte Nano Digital FPV Camera
VTX:- FatShark Shark Byte TX5S.1 VTX
VTX Mount:-
Receiver:- TBS Crossfire Nano RX
Antenna:- TBS FpvCycle Mini Immortal T
Props:- HQProp T3x3x3 Propellers 3030
Weight:- 166g (without battery)
POD Design created in Autodesk Fusion360
POD Materiel:- Polymaker PolyMAX PLA (
Paint:- DNA Custom Paints (

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..

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..
