This frame from Lumenier is simply the most well thought out frame i have ever had the pleasure to build. They have given everything a dedicated spot. There is a space for your reciever and the cap. They gave you options to run and video system out there! The frame was built with the DJI Air Unit in mind, and they give you foam pieces to mount it, it also has 20x20 mounts for the Caddx Vista and 30x30 mounts if you are an analog guy. And then there's the awesome camera cage, it's has concentric holes so it will fit either the 20mm wide DJI camera or a 18mm standard micro cam. They also give you an antenna mount, quad skids (that you can order a led kit for), the Air Unit mount I mentioned and soft mounted go pro mount. The only thing they don't give you in the kit that I would have appreciated is a TBS Immortal T mount, however as this is Johnny Schear's designed frame and he uses the DJI transmitter I can understand why they don't include it.

So now that I have talked about the extras this kit includes, now we need to talk about the design. They really came up with a unique and solid design for how the arms are mounted to the frame. They have created a design where the stack screws are completely issolated from the arms. There is a x shaped carbon piece that the mounts to the frame with the stack screws (both 30x30 and 20x20). Then the end of the arms are L shaped and they lock into the X shaped piece and two little wedges on the sides of the frame. The arms are then secured to the frame 1 screw that goes through the bottom plate the arm and the middle plate and then the middle set of standoffs.

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..
