The frame is a 7in. FPVCycle Cineglide. The arms are 5mm in thickness. I fell in love with this frame because the GoPro sits lower than the frame in order to create a better center of gravity of the aircraft while keeping props out of view. Bob at FPVCycle engineered a well designed and thought out frame for cruising and cinematic shots.

Using 6s 1800 mAh LiPos (RaceDay Quads) with BrotherHobby 2806.5 1300 Kv Avenger motors, I have dynamic PWM frequency set in Blheli 32. I am currently following Chris Rosser's tuning guide for Betaflight 4.3. The first maiden flight was impressive on a stock tune with Betaflight 4.3 and my current ESC settings. I will post performance notes once tuning has been finished.

Note: In the build list I used a micro Foxeer Predator V5 for my camera. I am running a V4 which I don't believe Foxeer makes anymore.

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..
