This build is mainly an attempt to get some better analog video, since my previous 800mW builds don't really go as far as I wish them to.

The process is a lot of figuring out if I'm going with 2.5 watts or 1.6W. I actually ended up with the TBS unify pro32 (which claims to go up to 1Watt), which apparently needs to hook up to this "TBS agent" to turn on smart audio, but that was pretty quick to figure out. I'm still on 4S packs, right now that's what it's gonna be, until I get a bit better at flying.

Again, this setup is aiming mainly at better video and learning how to fly without being scared to crash.

At this point I'll shut up about price... it's just mind boggling to me how affordable these parts have become... lately I'm just grabbing parts..4 motors left and right, often for under $40 for all four...what could go wrong...lol

Ok, so today i did the hover test and it passed. I'll go to the office Park later and give that VTx some field testing.

I know this started out as a "don't make it too pretty, so you can crash it"...kinda build... it's really grown on me these past couple o days though.

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
