This is my second build using the Armattan Chameleon Ti frame. It has been impressively durable and a great form-factor, but the lower top plate means that the stack is somewhat limited in height. The Holybro Kakute F7 AIO FC removes the need for a PDB layer and allows for soft-mounting of the whole FC and a clean mount for the 30x30 AKK FX2 VTX above.

Noise is minimal to the gyro and makes for incredibly smooth flying without a lot of tweaking. I also wanted to try running the gyro in 32kHz mode and use the full capabilities of DSHOT1200 with BLHeli_32, and the F7 processor and the Aikon AK32 ESCs have worked flawlessly so far.

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..
