Just 2 weeks before my vacation in the french Alps, i found a used FR7. I decided to install the air unit to have better image quality and better range.
It was just fantastic to fly and surf the mountains with HD video.

Just below, find 2 links to my youtube channel

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..
