Phantom Scrap

got a used phantom frame and stack for cheap and finally built it out

update 1st May 2020
I crashed this indoors and the c-clip popped off causing the bell to fly off. I was able to find the bell but the shaft had detached and was lost. I replaced the shaft from a br1103b motor and while I was at it, I measured the stator to be 1103.5! No wonder these motors are so powerful and heavy for an "1102"

update 2 Feb 2022
currently rebuilding my daily flyer so wanted something decent to fly around and found this little guy. basically I had stolen a 2mm shaft from another motor and slotted it in. the bell spins completely freely so will need to glue it but for now, just bolting on the props, thank goodness for T-Mount! :P I've just updated this to 4.2.11 betaflight from 3.5.7 and given it the bluejay firmware update so now it's RPM filtering and all that jazz! UAVtech's toothpick preset is loaded. Let's see how this thing fares!

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..
