This is my 3S 2" Airblade Eclaire sporting Brotherhobby Returner R3 5100 KV's. It has the absolute cheapest F3 10A Minicube stack, a WoolfWhoop P1 and an XM+. Other than the frame, battery, and props there is nothing more to it. This brat is the one that I profess to "burn the sky" with. It is fast as I imagine a micro going. Those R3's are 20 bux a corner, and they act like it. At 5100 KV they are not screamingly over-revved, but rather have the torque that most micros lack because of their motors' curve. I use the hulkie 2040's after an exhaustive 2" prop search. I am no longer a fan of Gemfans larger props, but the little ones work just as good as anything I've seen so far. If you are looking at this build page due to a post on Reddit, it is likely that I thought you posted one of those "first build list with a quad way overpowered for my skill level" questions. This is as much quad as even I absolutely must have. I guarantee some pilots can't fly their 3, 4, and 5 inchers the way I fly this little bird. It rips and will teach you enough to know how to build and fix a full fledged gate-crashing sky-carver.

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..
