AirbladeUAV Intrepid V2 3" with the Mamba Mini Flight Stack.

This is my most in-depth build to date, that being said, it wasnt overly difficult. I would highly recommend a fine tip soldering iron errr....tip.

It hasn't been airborne yet, but just git everything setup in Betaflight.

Nice, can I ask the weight with a battery? I'm thinking of this setup but possibly dual camera. I wonder if it will be under 250g?

Ill have to throw it on the scale again but i believe i was at 227g with an 850mah 3s. get rid of the leds and use biblades and i think you would be able to get it under 250g...i was going to go dual cam too but i dont think it is necessary with the turtle.

I built it with dual cam - its about 170g with a bunch of 3d printed stuff so yeah with 650mah 4s you are pretty much exactly at 250g
Will post build soon. I used 1407 brat motors and dys 3" triblade props, micro swift and caddx turtle v2. f428 stack and r9mm rx.

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..
