Nice build! How's that lense on the camera for you? I tried a wide angle lense and couldn't handle the distortion at the edges :( I also had one of these printed for my build: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1529940 Just put it on tonight and love how clean it makes the back end of the quad.

I purchased them separately from rotorgeeks. Can't recommend the screws, all of them exploded and were replaced with steel.

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..
