Threw together a basher quad from the old parts bin.

The 4in1 ESCs are from the eachine minicube back in 2016!
Some may know the old piko blx boards - this is using HGLRC's version of the board, also from 2016! Of course, no OSD so I've installed a beeper.
Too bad the piko boards have a hardware conflict and cannot support RPM Filtering...

Rotorious FPV's Crook got a little refresh - the arms splines are asymmetrical but it's still a squared X layout. I didn't use the printed cam/vtx holder. This frame is extremely light.

update 3th March 2020

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..
