I did some, lets say, "experimenting" with the original 5" arms, then got some 6"ers done for it (thanks lazd). The 5" arms are a few mm short of being able to hold 6" praps. I had originally drilled another motor mount hole in the arm tip to move the motors out more, but this would have been disasterous in a crash. (also thanks lazd) Sometimes I only think of what I can do, not what I should do. ;)

I was planning on using this as the base for my Firebirb, but ended up using a Kingcrab (a 5" version of the Garagecrab) I've wanted to do something special with. This build was finished in standard style just because it was such a good looking set of carbon. I printed a 30 to 20 stack adapter to use my favorite combo, Ori32 and Omnibus Nano. I'm not sure what it will end up being, but the new BanniHeavy Thiccboi edition is a damn nice frame! The Session mount from Raggio fits perfectly on this one by sheer chance. Pretty neat. :)

It's already back in pieces waiting for the right special project, but I wanted to post this build because I think it was really sharp looking.

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..
