Using the BetaFPV AIO 20A V3, AirBladeUAV Superman 1404/3850kv motors with BetaFlight 4.1.6, RPM Filters and a tune from Stew Alcock.

Follow this guide, but instead of using the JESC Firmware (that costs a small amount), use the free JazzMaverick Firmware.

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.
