Hopefully I might get some of those cheap racerstar motors, new 6s (8s maybe??) esc's and potentially a new frame and make this a nice 10" fpv quad. I had 2212 920kv motors but swapped them out for some old samguks for a quick test.

Black spray painted cx-20 shell on the top - looks pretty cool.

test flight - this had 5" props

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.
