Considering I would mount antenna sticking out the back, will I have enough room on the top plate to mount the 85mm long battery there?

I absolutely love this frame. Low price aside, this was my review workhorse and I thrashed the piss out of it for almost 2 years. I was recently forced to retire it though. I was doing a fast power flip through some pine trees coming up fast and when I flipped the camera or vTx reset causing me to lose all video. Had to disarm it and literally had enough time to put my goggles and remote down and watch it free fall onto its belly on the pavement. Cracked all four arms, and the top plate. Ironically still completely flyable. I just retired it since its had its abuse.

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..
