Update: After a few flights and some experimentation, I've changed to Gemfan 2540 3 blade props. They make this little build rock and fit the frame much better. Only added 2g to the total weight but the thrust and pull increase more than makes up for it.

Just finished and so far no problems. It was easy to build and just fell in place, except for the buzzer. What to do with the buzzer...? Running Betaflight 3.2.2, DSHOT 600 and IBUS. Too bad this camera has no video in/out since the FC has an OSD but I'm unable to use it. Might have to remedy that in the future.

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..
