Nice little quick 4" X frame. I have the 5" version as well that I can swap everything over to.
The PZ0420m board cam with the 2.4 lens fits nicely and it well protected in the pod. The Bee Rotor FC has an OSD built in, but I bypass it. The FC and PDB combo has a a current sensor which I can get to Taranis telemetry.

Got the idea from nytfury a while back, so good enough for the world champ to practice with. He just gobbed it on there. Putting some shrink and filling it makes it a little cleaner 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..
