This thing has some insane performance! Easily twice as fast and powerful than a whoop. You won't be fighting for altitude with this.

Flights are 2 minutes (with power to spare) and the batteries come down at 3.75v. 40.5 grams all-up weight with battery.

Updated build with 1102 15000kv motors. The 0703 20000kv's work well but the brass bushings don't last.

i havent had any canera damage issues... plenty of crashes though. the tpu is wiggly so it absorbs impact

Do you think the cost to build this is worth the reward vs a similarly powered Brushless 7mm at half the cost?

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..
