I made some changes to my first toothrip build that used 1104's. I found that the 1104's (although low kv) still drained the battery and caused the quad to feel heavy overall... Now, this is the funnest "quads" I own. It's very predictable, very aggressive, and it's quick. I feel like when I fly it I don't get a break. It's just go, go, go. It doesn't have hang time and it can't really be thrown over things. It's very "point and shoot."

What I changed from Toothrip #1:
replaced 1104 5250kv with Betafpv 1103 8000kv
replaced akk backpack vtx with vtx03
replaced eos2 with a small whoop type camera
replaced avan 2.3" triblades with Gemfan 3018 (cut to 2.5"ish)

this brought the weight down from 82g to 65g dry weight. In addition, the 1103's, plus the weight loss, plus the biblades helped fix the amp draw problem.
there's some jello coming the camera mount... so, I'm thinking about replacing it with a different mount and a runcam nano 2.

Dvr ( I can get more out of the tune with more p gain, but it didn't bother me too much)

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..
