This has been my first full build. I’ve repaired many before, but have never started from scratch.

After spending some time looking around at frames, I was taken by the Catalyst Machine works Shocker frame. Having the chipsets hanging from the bottom and the motor platforms being higher sounded like it could have great potential. I decided to go for the 4” frame as I already had a 5” and a 3” drone.

This frame was designed to handle two 20x20 stacks. I decided to go for the Mamba F722 mini stack, which are fitted into the front bay. The rear bay houses the TBS crossfire nano and the TBS Unify pro32 nano (on the same board), along with a spare board being used to mount a battery-operated buzzer.

With the battery shortage I’ve not managed to fly this yet, but I’m hoping to use some 4s 850mah lipos to power this.

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..
