I wanted to put a Vista into a RotorX Atom 4" but the stock canopy is far too small and there is no support for a 26x26 AIO.

It flies great and is super portable. This quad, the Tango 2, and the DJI Goggles can be thrown in any backpack.

Shoutouts to BensonK for the canopy design and to CNCmadness for cutting the frame.

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..
