TP3 3"

I forgot I had built this little thing and hadn't posted it, so here it is. Much preferred over the 65mm, both for the greater authority and 3s as opposed to 2s. Flies great outdoors and even in the wind, though you'll wonder why you pull so many amps in kite weather. 1404 4600kv 3s on Gemfan biblades has been great, range is excellent with the full-size Immortal-T and video is crystal clear all the way out with the TrueRC Singularity even on 25mw. Flight times from 5-8 minutes depending on, well, high winds. It accelerates and handles excellently.

I like this! Do you have flight footage?

I don't really have a reason to post to youtube or anywhere else, this is all I have as of late.

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
