The tough thing about this build was soldering the wires between the video transmitter and the Runcam. I was very pleased how this turned out. Very, very, very, very fast for such a small thing. 3.3oz.

I used the 'SPEKTRUM' pads for the Lemon satellite receiver. I used the Power from the 'OSD' for the video transmitter.

I used a touch of hot glue to hold things in place, and one zip tie per set of motor wires.

Update #1 8/11
re: maseffect on /r/multicopterbuilds suggestions to decase the Lemon, so I've done that. It is smaller, but the weight lost is negligible. The next update will be the 3d printed parts kit, that will be update #2.

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..
