Just the Standard Toothpick build, same as the one in Kabab's Build Guide on, I just wanted to give some more detail on the build process.

The first thing I did was pulling the plastic motor connectors of the board.
This was surprisingly easy, just use pliers to pull them vertically off.

The next thing you have to do is desolder the pins of the connectors, this can be quite tricky.
Secure the board in a vice or have someone hold it(this works best, but you have to be very careful not to burn the other person) I found my helping hands to be too flexible to hold against my pulling. Also only pull sttaight or the pin can break off. Then heat the pin from the back of the board while pulling on it. Sometimes the pins comes right off, but sometimes it won't budge. Try heating it from the other side, you can kinda fixat the iron between 2 pins there. I had to keep the iron on for almost a minute for one, which probablly isn't good, but it worked out. Done? Good, that was the hardest part.

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..
