Gnarly FPV Primo 10X Version with GEPRC GEP-12A-F4 f411 2-4s v1.1 AIO FC/ESC, Runcam Nano 2 camera with necessary Nano 2 Primo Canopy Adaptor. Used 1103 800Kv Lil floaters motors--would not recommend these for this build. Motors are good, however, the mounting patter has only two holes (see picture below of motor bottom). This 2-hole mounting patter does not align with the holes for motors #1 & #4 on the frame. You can actually see this in the all-up-weight (AUW) picture below (i.e. with battery on scale). The motor wires for motros #1 & #4 come out of the motor facing motors #2 & #3 respectively. Only a matter of time before the get ripped out of the coils. I would suggest going with Airblade 1103 8000 Kv or Flywoo Nin NT103 7650Kv which have 4-hole mounts (which Gnarly FPV recommends on his website!) instead. Made it work with the Lil Floaters for now though and she's quite a Fun Flyer!

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..
