This was my first ever fpv brushless build. I can't exactly take credit for building this one. I gotta give some credit to flite test for doing most the work. I originally purchased this as a kit with 1104's and the 6a esc's. It took me and a buddy forever to finally get it working. It worked for maybe a week until i crashed it, took like 30min to find it. When i found it one motor wouldnt spin. I replaced motors and esc's and eventually just sent it into flite test for them to fix it. While they were at it i asked if they'd upgrade the motors to 1106's and they put the esc's on it for free. Dont use it as much anymore but its still a fun little build to rip around with. Works pretty good indoors on 2s and rips outdoors on 3s. I did replace the nylon standoffs and skrews with some aluminum standoffs and steel bolts because they kept breaking. Dry weight is 81g.

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..
