Awesome!!!!
I love it SO much!!!!!
Ok, now the deets: that dome over your flight stack looks light, and durable, how is it attached (and also: what was it?)?
SO I have questions about takeoff and landing, your cam angle is WILD
Do you stand it up on the bottom of the battery sled, and if so is your cam angle...like...115deg?!??!?!??!
How do you land? do you have a soft spot to plop it down, or do you drag the tail? Follow up: do you have some kind of expendable plastic on the bottom edge of the tail, or does it straight drag carbon?
I would love lOvE LOVE some LOS footage of that bad boii in the air, please please please!!!

Love the way this looks. I'd like to do something similar in a 2-2.5 inch form factor.

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.
