Update 10.15.2020
Replaced the HQ props with Gemfan 76d. Upgraded to crossfire. Changed VTX to a flywoo goku.


I produce monthly videos for a department at my school, so I built a cinewhoop for the sake of getting more dynamic shots. A few brief notes:

  • Motors are relatively cool, I'm pushing about 40% throttle to get off the ground
  • I was able to get f.port running on the FC without changing any settings to the Sbus pad
  • I'm considering setting a throttle curve so I can hover at a lower throttle
  • Although the r9mm antenna is poorly placed, for the purposes of filming - the range is perfect

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..
