I wanted to build a top mounted battery frame and I found this frame on Banggood.
The carbon is pretty rough, but it goes together well, arms are sturdy, and the aluminum is solid. It's heavy at 550g with the 4S battery.
The Samguk motors are smooth and powerful enough for a fun freestyle build.

The video setup you have there will outrange it, and that's kinda the opposide order you want that to happen in.

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..
