Welcome to my first x8 Build. Wanted to it for a long time and finally Pulled the Trigger.
The T-Motor Velox V45A V2 has a 10pin Connector and the Lux H7 got 2x 8pin Inputs, since I needed to rewire the connector I took the 10V regulator and one ground out and put the rest into an 8pin connector.
I needed to print some Custom washers under the Vista and inbetween the ESCs. Also I needed smaller screws for the motors (M2x4).

AUW is about 500g with Hero 7 and Ovonic 1000mah 6S, flight time is about 3.5min when flying like a Cinewhoop with Gemfan D76 5-blade Propellers on top and Gemfan 3028-3 on the lower motors

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..
