Awesome build. You like your frame? what diameter are the carbon fiber tubes? I did a similar build with iNav and the same motors(2 extra), but a 3000mah batt. What kind of flight times are you getting with 6000mah? My build. https://rotorbuilds.com/build/15250

hi,

carbon tube are 14/16mm

with 6000mah, i ger 16 minutes flight time .

Thanks. I wish I had gone that thick on booms for greater strength. 16 minutes seems short though. At least less than I would have expected. I wonder if its the all up weight, or the batteries are misrepresented... Only thing I can see, is I am using 10x4.5 apc props. They are nice and rigid. Maybe they are more efficient, or maybe because I am a hex there is less draw for thrust... Definitely cheap enough you should give them a try and see if you can't squeeze a couple more minutes out of it.

I'd love to see a video in LD flight.

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..
