My version of a sub 80 gram park flyer.
3mm carbon fiber base & harness type printed parts for maximized cooling, convenience and camera safety.
44.5 grams as on the pictures. Sub 80 grams with 450mah 2S battery.

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..
