Boxtop was my longest surviving original build drone. I flew many many many packs, a short time ago the video interferance got very bad. I tried some hackery but failed. I stripped down the FC and rewired all the parts (minus 3 motors). One motor was stripped and had to be replaced as well. I had an esc on another build fail, so a tbs nano pro 32 vtx became available. No more video noise :D :D :D I did not have any 11000kv 1103 motors left so i thru an 8000 on there. Still rips (over the house).
I went with a stack instead of mounting the rx behind the camera. Sticky tape is holding the vtx and rx to a plastic tray.
The antenna used to be centered, but it forced the battery forward, so i pulled it off to the side and can now get the 450 battery out of camera view.

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..
