First 7" to join the fleet. All 3D printed parts were designed by myself EXCEPT for the air unit antenna. If you want any of these parts.. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4128701

2x 1300mAh CNHL Black batteries in parallel gives 8-12 minutes of battery depending on flying style. Plenty of time to do multi mile mountain bombing runs which is what this build will be used for.

UPDATE
As of March 2020 this build moved to crossfire because R9 is trash with multiple pilots.

UPDATE July 15th
Still flying like a champ. Soldered SMA pigtails into the air unit to eliminate the terrible mmcx connectors. Added a new antenna mount to the rear which puts the VTX antennas in a much better location. Also added a BN220 gps above the gopro mount. Locks 10+ sats fast, and keeps locked during flight.

They came with the XL7 frame. I thought it was a good idea so I'll definitely be 3D printing these from PETG for future builds.

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..
