Glide Build for a customer. This must have been cursed since I first built it back to front, then the Uf.l snapped off the nano rx... but we got there!

Glide (std): It's really nice, easy to build in, good chamfers etc... apart from the press nut holes are too small and are painful to use. FPVCycle needs to change carbon cutter/cutting files because this is a common issue of theirs and just takes away from their brilliant 5 inch frames. Fantastic nonetheless!

Pacer V2 1950kv: Powerful, good hardware, nice design, unibell is well made, really light... just straight up great motors that I would rather use than xings atm. Better for light stuff (Still like the aeolus HGLRC line for heavy stuff) but amazing.

Zeez 2020 stack v1 (link incorrect): This is nice to build on, would recommend etc. It costs what it's worth, so it's pretty good to say the least. Well laid out and I like the philosophy.

Unify V3: Everyone knows it's great, I like it, It's inexpensive from team-blacksheep.com, and really will get you 10km or more in good conditions with a triumph pro antenna. Great little VTX.

Ratel V2: It's just really nice - no complaints as with everyone so far (I believe) really nice picture and I would recommend to almost anyone. It's pretty well made too with the black plastic cover instead of tape on the PCB!

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..
