I've wanted to try out 3", and these new 12A AIO boards put me on a search for the most thrust I could find with 12A and 3S. In that search I found the Spintech 1304ST 5200KV motors.

1200g+ of thrust at 12A benchmarks.
Build weight 83g dry, 135g AUW

This is WAY FASTER that my previous 1103 ultralight: https://rotorbuilds.com/build/8061

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.
