I'm building around these low Kv Blaster motors from the December 2019 Kwad Box, but I don't use 6s. I have the Unify laying around, but it's not long range. Camera is a spare as well. Frame and trusty Mamba stack are new for this rig.
Some light sanding on the edges, and the frame went together without concern. I like to use my own 30mm stainless for the stack. Swapped the red standoffs from another frame.
Wired the LEDs between the motors and ESC. I use half of an acrylic tube, sanded on the inside, as a lens/protector. Heat shrink holding all that in place.
Lastly the harnesses for the receiver, transmitter, and camera to the flight controller.
The FC & ESC connect with a short 8 pin harness, and come with plenty of o-rings to space the boards out.
Weight as pictured is 403g.

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..
