Finally after some problems with Parts and a lot of bad weather I decided to upgrade my X2 Elf from my previous build. I was happy with the build but the 10000kv Motors were just too much for my poor batteries plus I finally wanted to have OSD on this beast. Just listening to the buzzer wasnt ideal.

So I upgraded to some HGLTech 1104 Flames, an Omnibus F3 Nano Clone and a VTX01 which I had laying around for some time now. The Flames are just awesome. They have a very good buildquality and the power are pretty nice. Recommandation is given here.

To fit the VTX01 into the X2 Frame I had to modify the topplate. Turned our really nice. Also soldered the antenna to the VTX because I hate UFLs :D

Last thing I want to change is the camera (I changed the lens to a 1.8mm from an old tiny whoop camera, more enjoyable FOV). I still have this shitty cheap camera but it wont get down despite some serious crashes :D

Here is also a video of the beast. The tune isnt perfect yet, BUT for stock PIDs with Dynamic Filtering only its damn impressive.

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..
