Saw this SkyRyder98 frame on CNC drones with a light weight so I went for it. Right as it arrives I see Flywoo come out with the perfect FC and motor combo so I went for those too. 1203 motors on a 2 inch frame. Wee. My neighbors have kids so I only fly with prop guard in the yard. I sacrificed a 17 dollar amazon frame for these prop guards. Canopy is from a pickpocket and avan props give this a colorful look. At 12a I just went with a BT2.0 connector instead of XT30. Found decent batteries that came with PH2.0 so I converted them to BT2.0. The 3M industrial locking velcro holds the battery well enough. This is the first of two that I am experimenting with wider wheel base. 2 inch props on a 98mm spread should reduce undesirable air under quad, or so I read. The TPU is priline, gives very shiny effect. I routed motor wires to be long in the event that this quad does not last long I could still use the motors elsewhere.

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..
