it's the fullHD eyas x2 rehashed!
the only iflight here is the bottom plate of the ix2 (original)

it's sitting at 72g before the battery. I was going for the nano crossfire rx but turns out the FC doesn't have spare UARTs

I've been thinking about this frame with Turtle for a while now, does the camera fit with original cam mount?

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..
