This frame fit the requirement of stretch X, flight controller not part of the top plate stack, and replaceable arms. I'd like to experiment with getting the camera a little forward and lower and the VTX on the bottom of the top plate as it is on the x210 build. I'm not a huge fan of VTX antenna coming out of the top plate. The DTFc drilled out and soft mounted on o-rings seems to be doing well. I'll probably build another using a F4 board and some 4-in-1 ESC.

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..
