My first proper FPV freestyle frame. LOVING IT! Those camera plate from FPV Ninjas really help with getting the posts out of the way using a 1.8mm lens and 45deg angle
I now have two setups, the other running a TBS unify 5V and cobra champion motors.
In the pics you can see the old setup with the standard PDB and the TBS Unify mounted to the top plate. In another you can see how the Tramp is mounted on the antenna plugs.

I love the reaktor PDB and having everything just plug in. Only the XSR is soldered to the FC.

This is the setup I plan to fly for a long time for freestyle, only thing I see changing are the motors as they get killed :D

I'll repost when I have flown the Tramp HV more and see if I like it better than my TBS. So far the performance is the same and the IRC race wand to change channels is an awesome feature!

I have to add that today I did a 5 minutes flight on the Revolectrix 1500 and the Cobra Champion pushing the new HQ 5X4X3 VS1. Those lipo are amazing, go give them a try, the http://pitchrollyaw.net guys are great!

I has flying all out, but not putting along either.

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..
