I had a few extra parts to build out another frame and decided on the Rekon5. The build was actually quite easy and came together nicely.

T-Motor Cinematic F30 4in1
iFlight SucceX-E Mini F4
TBS Crossfire Sixty9
iFlight XING 2005-2550KV
iFlight Nazgul 5030 Props
Caddx Ratel V2

No GPS
No Buzzer
No GoPro (yet)

The pigtail referenced in the parts section worked great for placement of RX/VTX and was cheap and on amazon prime (so quick shipping).

Default PIDS and setting on BF 4.2.9 with the exception of turning off D min.

I built with the intentions of using my 850 4s lipos and forgot them at home when I went to test fly. Ended up using my 4s 450's... AMAZINGLY - I flew for 6:30 on the 450!!! I am not used to getting anything over 5 minutes on any other quad I own...

The total weight (without lipo) came in at approx 147g.

Anyway - It flies great. Range is fine. The Immortal T mount is different, and I hate bending it every time I land, but I get great signal and no problems yet.

*Only problem encountered had to do with binding that Sixty9 to my Tango2... Agent M worked better than Agent X as of now.

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..
