Reptile Harrier S1100.

Not a rotorcraft, but it has a lot of similar parts and it builds the same, except for longer wires and gluing things together.

The inside of the wing is dense, Matek F7 with Matek wing PDB and not so good Matek VTX.

Very fast 330Hz digital micro servos on 6V.

Motors for 7"-6" 2506 2100kv with two 60A 32bit esc. Powered by two 3s or two 4s battery in parallel.

With some car vinyls in smallest size possible. Wings are detachable, the craft can be carried in large shopping bag.

They say this kit is one of the advanced ones. True. It is very advanced for the postal service. My box looked like she escaped from hell when arrived.

So it was just perfect on being my first airplane to build. But not first airplane to fly.

Working good, but I did not manage to throw it. I got COG bad for first time. I have managed to take off easily by vertical launch. But then the flying field was too small and wing so fast with poor turning rate, so I flew behind myself out of range.

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..
