My first 3 inch build. Because I choose to use a PDB instead of using the Piko as the PDB it was a ton tougher to fit the Receiver, VTX, Buzzer and the rest of the wiring. In the end I glued the Buzzer behind the camera the VTX is held by friction on the left rear so I can still see the LED and use the button. and the Receiver just sits on the back battery leads. There simply is not much room in such a low stack height.

I am running it on 3s 650Mah Tattus and 4s Luminer 500 Mah HV batteries. It screams on the 3s but is probably the fastest thing I have on 4s. Fast forward flight is its foray. I was at first skeptical of the extreme FPV camera lean but it totally works.

some weights for you

145 grams no battery
200 grams with either battery.

it would easily be under 250 grams for those canadians with a 850mah battery.

here is a quick LOS video of the quad on 3s 650mah batteries.

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..
