Nice build, I really like how this frame flies and Ive been curious to know if the Zeus would fit. Im definately going to order one. Thanks for sharing

Could you post a video of it flying?

Nice setup man! love that frame too. It looks like its built to take a hit, especially since its pretty light (if I remember correctly, 22grams) and doesnt have a ton of momentum. The camera protection looks especially nice! I cant imagine it taking too much camera damage even in a head on crash. I've actually considered putting my babyhawk r in this frame. I like volitant's frames a lot too. If you haven't checked his out on armattan I highly reccomend giving them a look. They all have nice narrow arms and are ridiculously lightweight while still being sturdy thanks to super short arms with plenty of thickness. He makes a 4 inch 23gram frame and a 13gram 3 inch frame (including aluminum hardware!). That said, your frame is far sturdier and more practical. I'm really digging your setup!

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..
