Armattan Bumper in Blue--Attempt to minimize exposed PCBs and wires--Expected Completion 04/20/2017

Update 1: Build delayed while I deal with Banggood. They sent me a bogus 4-in-1 ESC and I need a replacement. New expected completion date is 5/20/2017.

What did you use to cut the hole in the center? Did you glued the top plate on first before cutting? Really clean work, looking forward to seeing the final build.

I used a Dremel tool to remove all the foal except for a small layer that will insulate electronics from the "top plate" (being used as a bottom plate. I then epoxied the bottom plate to the bottom part of the frame and built up from there. It is a tight build and I have had some issues with the Eachine stack I bought and banggood--But it has fortunately been figured out.

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..
