Ro-Ro-Ro-Torius! 2.5" with Runcam Split mini.
My first micro build, came in a bit heavy, but thats alright (for the first one). 118g with foamy pads and zipties (not pictured), 185g with the flight controller armed.
Used RCX 1304 4000kv not the 5000kv listed below. I changed the standoffs for 25mm ones to fit the Runcam Split mini, Preorderd the new V2 (with 1 board) maybe it will fit with the provided 20mm standoffs... we shall see... Also I would probably would use the akk nano v2 style vtx as the akk x5 is more square, the v2 would fit better. Finally don't forget more m2 hardware!! m2x6mm for the props!
Flys awesome, need to work on: jello... mounting/ sheilding the capacitor away from the rx and vtx (fpv feed is noiser than I am used to) adjust the pids and rates (I normally fly a 6"... the 2.5" is like a crazy angry little bug!), Securing the battery better (as seen in the vid..)

Update: The runcam split mini 2 fits with the 20mm standoffs! :( I had a short, magic smoke came out of the board.... so back to V1... Drat.

Updates (Jan 2020) motors get pretty hot on 4S, running on 3S 850mah, it is much happier. also using the runcam split mini V2 with 25mm standoffs, new vid coming soon.

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..
