I didn't have any cinewhoop-style frame. When amaxinno sold out their Butterfly 2 inch frame very cheap it was my chance to get such a frame which protects motors, props and obstacles. The main drawback of the frame is the 16x16 mounting. Too sad that whoop boards took over. Flywoo seems to be the only brand selling stacks in this size. Second thing which wasn't solved at all was camera mounting. I printed a mount for a Runcam 4 Nano which is now well protected.
The build is powered with 3S 450mah and the Flywoo Goku 16x16 stack. The stack vomes with a 13A ESC and F411 controller with nice built in LEDs.
The VTX is an EWRF7082VM v2 running OpenVTX. The RX is a Happymodel ExpressLRS EP2.
Motors are 1103 5000kv from amaxinno. First I tried HQ six-blade props T51x6 which made some nice sound, but didn't had the punch I could get with regular HQ 2.3x3 props. I fly the frame in pusher style battery on top. Could convert easily to battery below if I had any lite HD cam for cinewhoop recording.

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..
