Upgraded my original twiglet build that used an old betaFPV Z01 camera/vtx to a runcam racer nano and a 3d printed canopy from tacoRC.

I absolutely loved my original build and recently busted the motor shafts on the two front motors, and some how destroyed the fc. So just decided to go all in and build it exactly how I wanted it.

UPDATE: 5v regulator was doa, so the fc wont power via anything higher than 5v. Replacement will be here in a few days. May use the new 2-3s aio from betafpv that i was planning on using for another build.

Link to original build: Twiglet AKA Groot

used the 2-3s aio and flew it, it was hands down the best flying thing Ive built yet, right up until I center punched a metal pole. Thought i toasted the cam and bought a replacement, but its fine! The front cross bar took almost all the blow. Just lost a prop/ motor shaft that tore up some motor wires. Fixing it all now. Should be flying tommorow.

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..
