Rebuilt the RotoriousFPV BandoRacer 4" Basher with some decent hardware
good riddance to those nasty Eachine Tyro 1607 motors and noisy Racerstar AIO FC
Hoping to get rid of a wierd judder when coming off the throttle. This was happening with both the 1407 and 1607 motors.

These motors feel extremely well put together. They spooled up super quiet and silky on the bench. Btw the bearing size for this motor is 7x3x3
Prop choice is a bit limiting as all the t-mount 4" props are low pitched -- Gemfan's 4023 tri and 4025 biblade and HQprop's 4x2 tri and 4x2.5 bi

This will be my first F7 flight controller. All set up, the CPU usage sits under 5% on the bench.

Overall change was a loss of 4 grams, not a bad weight. Definitely not an ultralight 4" racer. This will be a perfect freestyler.

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..
