Custom build using darwinfpv baby ape frame i got cheap and other components I had already lying around
I got my gf to paint the frame with some paint pens, super happy with how it turned out.
I had to drill the motor holes out with a 2.5mm drill bit as they were too small for regular m2 screws

Flight controller is a flywoo goku 13a i had laying around.
Vtx is a flywoo 500mw.
Caddx ant.
6000kv 1105? diatone mamba motors which fly really nice but I will probs replace them at some stage as I find these motors break a bit too easy
Running frsky instead of elrs bc I have too many spare old frsky recievers lying around and they work fine for smaller quads where you never fly further than 500m away anyways.

Running 550mah 3s

Ends up flying incredibly nice, one of my best flying quads, probably because of the combination of low weight and larger high kv motors for the toothpick 3inch class.

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..
