I simply purchased an Eachine Tyro109 kit and installed all of the components into the GepRC VX5 frame. Flies great, and was under $200 to put together.

how does this build fly? And what kind of flight times do you get?

It performs very well. Faster than I had expected on 4s. I haven't tried it on 5s yet. On 1300mah Ovonic packs I get over 4 minutes of flight with a lot of full throttle bursts.

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..
