This build just about emptied my wallet - I even had to sell my transmitter to fund it! (currently looking for a cheaper replacement to get back in the air) But I love to build, probably more than flying and I'm more than happy with how this one turned out.

I wasn't happy with the 3D printables I could find online so I made my own - on thingiverse now:

The biggest challenge was mounting the Tarsier which uses M2 mounting. I used long M2 bolts with some M2 brass grommets to make them sit nicely in the M3 holes.

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
