Had to , You understand ? dont you,
Charging liopos posting maiden now
Well that went well till the fc went ta ta , esc,s and motors ok ,.Spot the bent bits.
Im not surprised the fc went away , i have smashed it into at least a dozen builds.
Finished uploading.
The autopsy revealed a fried voltage regulator. Possibly some big caps may have prevented this.
I was running the air unit from the lipo. no damage there.they are tough.

1st of all, mad props to you for this. You posted that we should eyeball it for dmg, I think the two front motor mounts are levered up a bit (the high side is facing the stack), and the back right standoff seems bent (maybe both back standoffs, but just the extensions that are there to make room for the air unit). Also: I see that eachine wizard bottom plate, still goin strong!
Did it fly well? Was it similar to what you are used to?

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..
