At 240g AUW (with battery), this rips as a 3s 5 inch quad. Everything runs cool and is very responsive while maintaining impressive efficiency at almost 6 minute flights (without vtx). Can definitely cut weight in some spots!

Note: Pictures are without the VTX as I shorted it with a screw (Lucky me) and will upload full pictures and post flight times when I get the new VTX.

Update: Flew with a 3s 650mah gnb, just under 5 minutes flight time, a little harder than I pushed it on its maiden voyage (not great with line of sight flying). Check out my first attempt at recording a line of sight flight (missed almost every flip and loop, but you can see the shadow of the flips and loops!)

I was worried about the combination at first, but the aggressive props do well with the lower kv with the 3s, I flew it on a 4s 850mah tattu but it felt sluggish and less responsive but did get higher top speeds with higher motor temps as a side effect. In all, much more fun on the 3s!

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..
