Second build, decided to go for 6" for more power and efficiency. Fitting everything in was a nightmare, probably because of my wiring, but if I didn't have the aio FC, vtx and osd, I don't know how I would've done it.

6s capable, but am not confident in the esc's ability to handle the voltage.

So far the quad has been fine, apart from a weird issue with the FC, where it constantly drifts the quad in one direction, no matter how much trimming or calibration I do.

Edges were done with a silver paint marker, and the red wire covers are 3D printed with red tape around the outside.

May add more pictures later.

Yeah hat was a bit of a problem actually...I ended up just jamming it in there! It is very tight and there's a bit of bending going on in various spots, but it hasn't broken yet!

There is an alternate camera plate which you can buy, which I think will allow you to fit it nicely. It is available from the armattan store.

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..
