  • Based on the MOD-L 3.5 inch by ledroneclub, modified for M3 standoffs
  • About 242 grams AUW (incl. Insta360 GO 2) with a SLS NOC RACE 650MAH 4S
  • (Theoretically) about 248 grams AUW (incl. Insta360 GO 2) with a Tattu R-Line 4s 750mah
  • Arms are 4mm, but 3.5mm or even 3mm could suffice
  • An AIO FC, thinner arms, a more lightweight GO 2 mount, a minimortal T antenna and shorter motor-wires could reduce the weight by ~10g
  • The flight time is about 3-4 minutes with the SLS NOC RACE 650MAH 4S, the Tattu R-Line 4s 750mah might be better
  • Brotherhobby VY 1504.5 (3950kv) - a dream of a brushless motor for a 3.5 inch prop!
  • Props: Tested GemFan 3520, Emax 3.5x2.8x3 and HQProp T3.5X2X3 - as usual, GemFan and Emax got outclassed by HQProp in every category (efficiency, controll, sound, jello, "bite" and "pop")
  • Betaflight 4.2 + hd preset + bi-directional dshot, D min off
  • No props in view, no visible jello with the HQProp T3.5X2X3
  • Insta360 GO 2: Workflow and Image-Quality improved greatly! Also: ND-Filters!
  • Insta360 GO 2: Records up to 25 minutes of Video in Pro Mode/1440p/24fps (ca. 5-6 packs back-to-back)

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..
