This was an awesome build and a great experience. It all started when Lazd told me about how you could paint the edges of a frame with a little super glue and a paint pen. One night my girlfriend and I sat down in front of this and decided to trick it out. She loves art and I love quads and so we both had a blast doing some super cool detailing. The rest of the parts are just things I had laying around. I'm thinking that this will be my dedicated freestyle rig from now on.

How did you paint the frame?

Actually, it was my girlfriend who did the paint job. what you do is sand down the carbon and then use a paint pen to draw whatever you want. then use some CA glue to coat it. Do that a few times and you're done!

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..
