I saw that the SabotageRC Frigate 6" frame had just come to market so I decided to give it a shot. The frame with 2 spare arms and shipping was $48 so I figured why not. I have been wanting to try out the new low kv / 6s hype sweeping across the hobby so I figured this would be a good way. It rips for sure, on maiden I was smiling ear to ear.

What are your flight times like?

Great build! I love the way it turned out. Do you think there is room on top to toilet tank a batt with a HD mount? I have the Dingo on the way but was looking at that frame as a replacement for another bird.

Where did you get the GoPro mount, or did you print it?

I designed / printed it.

Can you post it on thingiverse, or dropbox it for me? I have been looking to base my long range off this frame but don't see a Session mount for it and would rather a printed solution. My design skills are woefully lacking

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..
