It's time for the yearly rebuild of my beloved orange Armattan 4'' Japalura. I finally decided to ditch the standard size flight controller and separate ESCs and go with a smaller 20x20 stack. I've been having great luck with the Diatone Mamba F405 MK2 stacks so I went with the Diatone Mamba F405 Mini MK2 stack. I've also been having great luck with the Rush Tank VTx lineup so I used the Rush Tank Mini. It previously had BrotherHobby Avenger 1507-4100kv motors and replaced them with the new BrotherHobby VY 1507-4150kv motors. Lately I've been putting a GPS on a lot of my builds and wanted to put one on the Japalura, The larger top plate is the perfect size to hold a GPS so I drew up a TPU mount that clips into two of the four holes. I couldn't really find a good spot to mount the TBS Immortal T antenna so I made one that slides over the smaller top plate and holds the antenna in place with a couple zip ties.

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..
