I was planning on making a 2S variant with Avatar and FPVCycle 2104 motors, and now I'm curious if it's worth it to save weight and go for 1404 instead. Curious what the difference in amp draw is going to look like between the two.

I'm looking g to use the skystars kramam with elrs rx, bn180 and smartaudio... I think I have to add an extra tx and rx pin using softserial. how did you do it?

it was cruising at 6.6 amps but hovering at under 4.

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..
